Royal Welsh WAGS send rock to Afghan

They've helped design sticks of rocks for the Royal Welsh Regiment who are just beginning a six month tour of the country.

The women got the idea from one Mum who sent out the sweets to her son. The seaside treats are green, red and blue, the Royal Welsh colours and has the battalion name running through the centre.

The rock's been donated from a company in Blackpool and has now been delivered to their home Barracks in Chester ready to be flown out.

A support group for families has been created on Facebook, where the friends and family of the soldiers work together to send out treat boxes from home. They can include anything from Pot Noodles to Ketchup.

It was the brain child of Karen Bott from Rhyl whose son Craig is beginning his second six month tour.
