300 soldiers lead by 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards (QDG) are on UN Operations in Mali for six months. They will be away from families and loved ones over Christmas, some for the second or third time in a decade.
The Regimental Association, friends and families of QDG raised money to buy and deliver Christmas Hampers to their families left behind in the UK as well as sending a small Christmas hamper to the soldiers in the field.
Over the last few weeks a band of volunteers has help deliver many of the hampers.
The Regimental Comrades Association would like to wish everyone in Mali a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Wishing you all a successful and safe tour.
