I think you can get calenders with professional models/better photography for an equivalent or even cheaper price.

If someone who willingly travels to a foreign land to battle and keep us … If someone who willingly travels to a foreign land to battle and keep us at home safe who are too scared to even consider joining the British Armed Forces is not a hero then I don't know what one is.Soldiers ARE heros and they deserve our support. We know the war is wrong and so do they, but they are not allowed to speak out against it. I can't imagine what it must be like to do their job. Getting shot at for hardly any money? They get my support any day.



That's not quite true. They aren't conscripted.

They go where they are told, do as they are told and do not get involved in the politics. The armed forces can not refuse to go where the government tells them, thus they are not able to say no to the war.sorry my comment wans't simple enough for you to understand.



I don't think it was the simplicity that was in question - it's just a different point of view.

Every person has a conscience and a choice to make. No one is forced to join the army and brave men have become conscientious objectors because of their beliefs.

But WE are the government. WE pay their wages. WE have a responsibility not to abuse their trust and send them to die needlessly.

What you're reading is a contrary opinion - it's the basis of democracy and the only people who seem not to understand that but instead insult other people are not the one's objecting to the war.

EVERY person is responsible for their own actions.

The purpose is to raise money for "Help for Heroes".And yes this it the place. We have idiots on here blatently undermining the troops. Take it to the Government; not the soldiers.

Damn hippy.You are an absolute fool. To say that WE are their employers … Damn hippy.You are an absolute fool. To say that WE are their employers is technically true, however how on earth is you or I expected to bring back the soldiers who I agree are dying needlessly?! Please do tell me! Even if you vote against Labour at the next election the troops will STILL be at war because we have international commitments. The Government, as much as they are in power because of us, do not listen to public opinion. Whether you like it or not the troops won't be leaving Afghanistan any time soon.



Please, let's leave the insults out of this.

Can't get away from that unless you try to take up citizenship in another country.You can, of course, campaign to get enough people to vote for a government that stops the fighting - ironically the privilege of living in a democracy protected by soldiers, sailors and airmen etc. for decades.



It is an unfortunate thing that the British Army is seen to act in my name in all instances. But I suppose if we must all take responsibility for their actions, then maybe we should all say sorry for sending them to Iraq based on a lie.

Also, democracy isn't protected just by men in uniform. I think we've seen from recent years that it is every person's job to defend it, something many have forgotten about.

Your attitude to women is slightly derogatory. Again, no more please.

Also, another insult towards me. How delightful.

Quite honestly, I don't know if I could do the job. I never had a childhood dream to be one and I went from education to employment doing something I love.

Maybe if I felt compelled for finanacial reasons I might, or if it was something I truly believed in.

But if I'm unsure of my capability to do a job, how can you say with such certainty that I wouldn't?

If you didn't get shot by the enemy you'd probably get shot by your own mates for being such a tool.



That is quite possibly true, but again we can't know for certain.

But I probably would object to being sent to a war zone on the basis of a lie. I just don't have it in me to be treated by an employer like that.

I'm not sure what you mean. However it's plain to see that I made it very clear that only relevant posts should be made. Why you failed to observe this, I don't know. Perhaps you can enlighten me via pm regarding the spelling mistakes you have noted ?

Just to enlighten those who may have any questions about this particular posting, i have cut and pasted from the website responsible for the calender, so that members can learn a bit more about the concept behind it and where the proceeds from the sale will be going....
"Why Garrison Girls
Garrison girls are TRI- SERVICE wives and families, all ranks and units together. The idea of Garrison girls first saw the light of day in spring 2008

The driving force behind the Garrison girls is Sarah Bennett Thurston whose husband, like so many others, has served in many of the world's trouble spots. Sarah wanted to raise money for two charities: Combat Stress and Help For Heroes . Her idea was for wives of all ranks and all units from the three services to pose nude for a professional fund raising calendar.

Internationally renowned photographer Mick Payton, who was the artistic genius behind last year's photographs has once again created a series of stunning prints which make up Garrison girls 2010 calendar.

The original calendar raised several thousand pounds for the charities (with money still coming in.. total to be announced soon!) and we are hoping that 2010 will be even more successful.

The girls who feature in the Garrison girls 2010 calendar are all different to those involved with 2009 and yet again none of them had any previous experience of modelling. To pose nude was daunting, but all the girls knew that it nothing compared to what our Husbands and friends go through on active service and their main focus was to raise money and awareness for Combat stress and Help for Heroes.

COMBAT STRESS is the leading charity specialising in the care of British Veterans who have been profoundly traumatised by harrowing experiences during their Service career and who are suffering from poor mental health as a result.

Many Veterans leave the Armed Forces with highly debilitating conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety disorders. Their problems can remain masked for years, and they and their families may be struggling to deal with matters at home. Combat Stress is able to provide two integrated services to meet Veterans' needs:

•Dedicated, short-stay clinical treatment
•Community outreach just where it is most needed
We are currently working with almost 300 Veterans of the ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. And demand for our unique services continues to rise, with 1,257 new cases referred to us last year alone and not just from recent conflicts.

Our clients have served in every military and peace-keeping operation that British Forces have been involved in since the Second World War, including Korea, Aden, Cyprus, the Falklands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Bosnia, the Gulf, Sierra Leone and now the Middle East.

Since our formation in 1919, Combat Stress has helped almost 100,000 Veterans, drawn from all branches and all ranks of the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force, as well as the Merchant Navy and Allied Services.

HELP FOR HEROES was launched in October 2007 out of a desire to help members of the Armed Forces who have been injured in the course of serving their country. It was borne out of an immense respect and awe for the courage, humour and professionalism of the men and women of the Armed Forces who put their lives in danger, on a regular basis, on our behalf. What was started by a small group of friends with a desire to help, quickly ignited support across the entire country. Within weeks, celebrities, politicians, sportsmen and women, and people in all walks of life were wearing wristbands to demonstrate their support for the injured, embarking on fundraising events and making donations.
As a result of this cascade of support, Help for Heroes has raised, on average, over £1 million per month to help our wounded. The majority of the money raised has been designated to build much needed rehabilitation facilities. Much of the money raised comes from events initiated not by the Help for Heroes team itself but from people across the country who, spurred on by the desire to help, have undertaken fundraising events. The events have ranged from the large to the small. But every event continues to raise money that goes to support the wounded and every event makes another statement to servicemen and women that they are appreciated and that we care.

'This calendar is our tribute to all servicemen and women. We hope the public will help us in our support for the two charities'

Those Garrison Girls have done it again."

why are you writing in the style of a stern letter on an internet forum. Read back the tone of your comments they can easily be taken the wrong way.

Do you have a legal background, because to be frank I read enough "However, Perhaps and failures to observe" whilst in work. We are here to have fun and save some money

wasn't a similar deal submitted recently?

Someone explain how that works? A3 becomes A4? :?

Well A4 is exactly half the size of A3 so maybe you can fold it in half or rip out the A4 picture and leave the calendar/ date part behind.

Yes SIR!

And to keep to the rules... This is a cracking deal. Not only do you get a quality calendar but it also helps H4H which is one of the most worthwhile charities out there.
