Special Mother's Day News Service

The News, Portsmouth, teamed up with the Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary to publish Mother’s Day greetings e-mailed home by troops.

The newspaper ran two pages of messages last Saturday with photographs sent from the task force in the Gulf, including one of HMS Ocean crew members lined up on the flight deck to spell out Happy Mother’s Day with lettered T-shirts.

Editor Mike Gilson said: “There is a silent army of families waiting anxiously and praying for loved ones to return safely. We were delighted to be able to carry the messages from men and women who are clearly grateful for the love and support they feel from thousands of miles away.”
