Royal British Legion Schools Postcards to the Armed Forces

Back in November last year, The Royal British Legion sent out postcards to schools across the country so children could be given the chance to write a special message to members of the Armed Forces.

Well, over 10,000 cards were sent to wounded heroes at Selly Oak and Headley Court, Service personnel at different garrisons and fighting units and veterans who are residents of Legion care. Now the children of Shears Green Infants and Junior school have put together a video to say thank you to all of our brave troops and wish them well.

Be warned….it’s very heart-warming stuff! One boy reads from his message: “This postcard is to make you feel happy and joyful, and for you not to worry.” I’m sure it will do just that.
