Soldier's answer phone proposal

Help

The search is on for a mystery soldier who asked his sweetheart to marry him in a phone call - but left the message on the wrong answer phone.

Tyneside woman Diane Potts picked up the message and is trying to trace the unknown soldier.

The soldier can be heard saying: "Couldn't call last month but you know what it is like out there. I will be back in a few months.

"Really, really sad - one of the guys has been blown up. Speak to you next month. Love you so much, with all my heart and I was going to ask you, will you marry me?

"Can't wait till you give birth to my baby, your little soldier and my little soldier. I love you with all of my heart."
