    This is the 2nd Bluey that arrived today again this Royal Marines units parcels were funded by the Troops Trophy .

    Dear Gary & Cliff 19/04/11

    I'm writing this Bluey to thankyou both for the boxes of
    goodies that we received yesterday.

    My name is #####, I'm a Royal Marine Commando serving in
    the the ###-#-### district of Afghanistan I operate out of
    patrol bases throughout the GREENZONE I work with a small
    team and we're constantly moving around with very little
    time off. Coming back to find Welfare boxes from 'Treats 4
    Troops' on our beds certainly raised morale amongst my team.
    The contents of these boxes was SPOT-ON and it is great to
    be reminded of the support we get from people like yourselves.

    Thanks again and please keep up the good work
    ##### .


    Again not a BIG letter but it still highlights what these parcels from home mean to even elite units like the Royal Marines.

    Good work. Its great to see results.

    I remember getting a welfare box when I was in a dusty 20 man tent on the Iraq/Kuwait border in the run up and during the 2003 Op Telic 1 period. Very appreciated.

    Keep up the good work.:)
