Don't forget about them: Defence Forces abroad send Xmas wishes

Read messages to loved ones from those in some of the smaller overseas missions (where you may not even realise we have troops posted).

DID YOU KNOW that there are Irish Defence Forces personnel currently posted in 20 different countries across the world?

Some of those dreaming of home from farflung missions in Mali, Ivory Coast, Bosnia, Afghanistan and beyond have been sending photos and Christmas messages to loved ones here.

The slideshow below is just a small selection – if you’d like to see more, see the messages from those at 42 Infantry Group at UNIFIL in the Lebanon by clicking here. For other smaller missions, click here.

(Tomorrow, we’ll bring you the link to messages from those posted in Golan Heights, Syria.)
