BECKY'S LETTER
By Sue Deakin
Sue has had a letter from her 18-year-old daughter Becky, who's a Wren serving on the Ark Royal in the Gulf. Becky's also remembered two important occasions coming up: Mother's Day, and the seventh birthday of her little sister, Jadine.

I liked your video very much. It showed the real side of life for Service Women and Men's families and how hard it is when they are away and fighting in a war. It also showed how important mail is and keeping in contact.. I know this very well as I have been in the Merchant Navy for 15 years with my family at home waiting for Mail! I also have friends in the services. So, well done and I hope Becky had a great leave from Ark Royal this summer.
