UK soldiers celebrate Christmas

British soldiers spending Christmas in Afghanistan and Iraq have been sending home messages to loved ones and celebrating the festivities.

Military duties are being carried out as normal in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan, with many personnel able only to make a quick call home.

At the UK’s Basra Airport base, soldiers got a cup of tea in bed as part of a festive Army tradition.
