Support 1 R IRISH Afghanistan Wristband Awareness Campaign 04 February 2008
In preparation for the forthcoming operational commitment, 1 R IRISH has launched a Wristband Awareness Campaign to generate support for Royal Irish soldiers and their families.
Its threefold aims are to:
- Heighten awareness of the deployment of Irish infantry soldiers at the spearhead of foreign policy and global operations.
- Generate and widen demonstrable support to sustain both the soldiers and their families through the months of separation during the tour of duty in Afghanistan.
- Raise funds to further support our families, over and above what we already receive, for the immediate provision of welfare support – primarily for the movement of next of kin to visit the injured in forward based medical facilities either in the Oman, Selly Oak or Headley Court.
Please send a cheque with a £2 donation (payable to Central Bank 1 R IRISH) and your address to
Capt Bradley, 1 R IRISH, Tern Hill, Shropshire, TF9 3QE
Wear it with PRIDE!
