RELATIVES and friends of people in the armed forces are being offered the chance to send Christmas messages to loved ones serving overseas at a reduced price.
Audio company Celebration messages has decided to offer a discount on its CDs and MP3s which can contain up to an hour of personal messages in time for Christmas Day.
Jeff Trail, honorary secretary of the Exmouth branch of the Royal Marine Association, said: "For someone serving overseas it is a great moral booster to receive such a gift.
"They value everybody's support whilst they are away on operations and do not stop enjoying Christmas."

He added: "I'm just imagining the troops getting their CD's or MP3's on Christmas morning in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere that our forces are serving.
"I know the troops get a chance to call home - but this goes one step further. We usually do this for weddings, work leaving do's or birthdays, but there's no reason this can't be just as popular with our servicemen and women.
