    Again another letter to help Highlight the benefits and what has been made possible thanks to our North West of England Troops Trophy comps. I will post this Bluey that has just arrived from an officer in a mixed cadre of specialists doing a specific and important job. As usual I will omit any reference to names of personnel or units mentioned in the text, I'm sure the reader will understand my motives entirely when doing this.

    Dear Gary,

    I thought I'd write a quick note to thank you for the Welfare Packages that my men received yesterday most of the contents are now gone of course but they were very taken with the British Confectionery. There was a very Scottish feel to some of the packages and the goodies inside like the Shortbread and Highland Toffee that takes me back to my youth ! The McCoy crisps all went very quickly as did the Yorkie bars.

    The men are all very grateful and send their warmest regards for the time and effort you obviously spent for them. My men are not in the Trenches at the front but in ###### working with the Americans. Everyday they move around the streets of ###### watching for IEDs or Suicide attacks. They do a very dangerous job and life and death here are decided by pure luck. Most wish to be in Helmand but nobody has a choice. They all rotate through the country and most have seen combat in ########## ####### recently.

    Once again thanks for all you've done for the guys. They left me with a Galaxy chocolate mix plus the mentioned Shortbread and Toffee all very good, I'll get in touch with my feminine side lol. I am ##### ####### but work with the British Army on exchange I am unable to give our exact location as our unit is involved in covert operations around the city .


    My very best wishes ####### ######, ##### #######
