A choir of wives of soldiers serving in Afghanistan topped the British singles charts this week, beating X Factor winners Little Mix to the Christmas No. 1 spot and outselling the rest of the top 12 put together.
Wherever You Are by Military Wives, a song written using excerpts from letters sent between military couples, sold 556,000 copies, the Official Charts Company said.
All proceeds from the single go to The Royal British Legion and the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen Families Association.
A nice reminder of how so many military families have to spend Xmas apart, doing their duty.
