Arguably not a deal, but they need all the support they can get and the money goes to charity.

**Support your armed forces**

It's no secret that music has always been an integral part of the daily lives of soldiers, with vocal harmony groups a big source of morale boosting. Coming Home finds three serving war heroes in fine voice with an album that is destined to win the hearts of the nation.

The most recognisable member of the trio is without question 24-year-old Lance Corporal Ryan Idzi, who shot to fame earlier this year after singing 'Lean On Me' on reality television show The X-Factor. Sergeant Major Gary Chilton, and fellow Gulf War hero Sergeant Richie Maddocks join Idzi to complete The Soldiers.

Produced by Nick Patrick (Russell Watson, Katherine Jenkins), Coming Home features a collection of winning songs that are certain to pull at the heart strings, from a moving rendition of 'He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother' to the relentlessly optimistic 'With A Little Help From My Friends'. Part of the album's proceeds are planned to go directly to charities including Help For Heroes, The British Legion and The Army Benevolent Fund..

Totally agree, but the in overall terms, the British Army are taking the hardest hits from the numbers of deaths/casualties that the Op HERRICK Campaign is taking. But of course not forgetting the large number of RAF personnel who have paid the ultimate sacrifice or been injured.

good cause

If we buy, we don't have to listen to it.... right?

heat added

we can buy it coz its in a good cause dont have to listen to it though there more annoying than jonathan and edward

What a load of s***, bring everyone home and let the suited c***s who get us into these wars fight it themselves.

You may have a political point but this is clearly not a load of ****!

I totally agree! Whatever your politcal opinions the British Armed Forces are doing a tremendous job in Afghanistan unlike the majority of our european cousins.

Political, but how will your comments help those that have lost family or been horrifically injured in the Campaign - in a small way this will?

I'm sorry but I do NOT think you have a political point.

We live in a democracy. We vote for a government to lead this country, in free elections, and then they make decisions on our behalf. Some good - some bad. We all live with that and choose at the next elections someone to lead us again.

Meantime people in the forces serve their country without being able to decide what is right or wrong. All we can ask is that they do it professionally and with honour. All they ask from us is the support for them and the job they do.

Had I come back from the Falklands and someone had said I was not doing it in their name I would have been mighty pi**ed.

Whether you voted for this government or not does not matter. They have the majority and made the decisions on behalf of the populace.

It does not matter whether you buy the CD or not, personally I would rather just give the money direct to charity, but the forces serving in Afghanistan deserve everyone's support as we indirectly sent them there, whether we believe in the war or not. There is a quote somewhere that says a Governments authority stops at it's citizens skin.

"Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will. - Frederick Douglas"

Sorry I got on my soapbox but I do get angry when our forces overseas do not have our support for doing the toughest job in the world - protecting our freedom.

call me naive all you like, but if there was no one to fight in armies there would be no wars - simple concept yet only possible in a perfect world.

Like it or not soldiers are just pawns used by the greedy suits at the top (who have probably never SEEN a real gun), because maybe they are struggling to get employed or are stupid enough to be brainwashed by 'pride' to fight for their country...

Let the ones who get us into these wars fight them

You are naive! The rest of us live in the real world and whether in armies, or as individuals, man has fought since time began. It is in our nature and some people have always wanted to dominate or believe they are better than the next man. We need armies to prevent these people from taking control.

When you find this perfect world send me a postcard and I will come and join you.:thumbsup:

WOW! Haven’t you got a high opinion of the men and women who join the forces. "Struggling to get employed..... Stupid......."

Tell you what. Why don't you go down to Wootton Bassett the next time a plane comes home with a load of dead bodies on and express that opinion in the High Street and see how many people agree with you.

Last time I looked you needed qualifications to do certain jobs in the Forces and it is not only the ones who "can't get a job" or are "stupid" that have been killed! As an "educated" Officer I volunteered to serve my Country in the Falklands. I was not struggling to find work, I am not stupid and I had a choice. I still stand by that choice and every single one of the men and women in the Armed Forces who serve in a front line position today.

If you did not vote in the last General Election you have no say. If you voted Labour then you are one of the above. If you voted Conservative and are a little bit smug thinking that they would not have sided with America then I am afraid you are mistaken. We all share the responsibility, like it or not, in my eyes.

Are you trying to making yourself look stupid, or are you in general? If you ain't already aware there are Dr's, nurses, vets, highly qualified eletrical engineers, bomb disposal, i could go on for ever....are these all struggling for work in the outside world...your comment is laughable!! Most ex armed forces personnel, you will find are whipped up by the police force, fire brigade, personal high risk security work as soon as they sign off! On a personal level, having served in Afghan twice, and currently stuck at home whilst the hubby does his share i would remind you that your £8.95 for the cd probably goes towards the flowers that go on top of some unfortunates coffin! Now leave your political stance where it belongs, in the garden shed, and go home and give each member of your family a kiss and a cuddle and be fortunate that you can do that. Please don't bear a grudge for the "HEROES" that are no longer able to, all for doing a day to day job.

Last year we stood as a family at the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum on Rememberance Sunday for the service and it was chucking it down. (We thought the Tuba player was going to drown!) I turned to my son and daughter and thanked them afterwards for joining me and my son replied "If they could endure 4 years of this in the trenches along with the fear and the bombs Dad, I can stand here for half an hour to pay my repects to all of them" - he was 14 years old. It seems he knows the value of the sacrifice these people make for us all.

songswise....looks crap

Thank you for saying what most of us are thinking. My 4 year old is grateful to those who have fought during all the wars and understands that we are safe because of it. Seems others need to get a grasp on reality and thank those who have served for our country. We are eternally grateful to every single one including yourself.
