• Collection of jokes compiled by Project 65 – The Veteran’s Charity in support of the British Armed Forces
Our armed forces have a legendary sense of humor, dating back over generations of servicemen and women. The Laughing Soldier: The British Forces Jokebook, in aid of Project 65 – The Veteran's Charity, is a collection of jokes, along with messages of support for our brave and heroic troops, sent in by people all over the world. Contributors include serving personnel, veterans and their families, the general public and famous celebrities such as Alan Titchmarsh, comedians such as Milton Jones, MPs, including George Osbourne, all inspired by the Armed Forces’ strength and capacity for finding humor in the toughest of situations.
With a foreword by Al Murray – The Pub Landlord – and ex-marine Mark Ormrod, the Afghanistan hero who lost his legs and right arm in a landmine explosion and now best-selling author of Man Down, and illustrated with cartoons by The Comic Stripper, The Laughing Soldier’s collection of jokes will lift both the spirits of those serving and their families, and all of us who are thinking of them.
With heartfelt messages conveying the warmth and affection the British public has for our Armed Forces and a donation made to Project 65 from the sale of every book – helping them continue their important work in supporting and caring for our troops – anyone reading this book will not only smile, but feel truly proud of our laughing soldiers across the world.
