Christmas Message by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to the Armed Forces
Hi folks, Boris Johnson here, I just want to record my personal thanks to all of you – serving men and women in our Armed Forces – around the world.
Most people in our country are going to be having Christmas, tucking in with their families, you’re serving – many of you – far from home. But what you’re doing is incredibly important: not only keeping our country safe, you’re helping to keep a huge part of the world in peace and security. So we all owe you!
At this very moment, RAF Typhoons are ready to be deployed on a quick alert. Here in Estonia, we have the enhanced forward presence, 850 British troops. The British F-35s have passed their test, ready to be deployed from the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.
It’s an incredible thing to think of the…the breadth, the scale of British deployment overseas in 30 countries around the world, doing a power of good for the world.
Thank you very much for everything you do, you represent the very best of our country.
