SWAGS Servicemen's Wives And Girlfriends with Beret

A group of military wives and girlfriends have become 'calendar girls' to raise money for injured servicemen and women.

The SWAGs (Service Wives And Girlfriends) posed naked with guns, planes and tanks for the 2010 charity calendar.
A total of 50 volunteers, all wives and girlfriends of men from the three Armed services, were photographed at bases and training centres in Hampshire.
The calendar has already raised £26,000 (Rs 18 lakh), which will go to help servicemen who have been wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Kelly Monk (20), whose boyfriend Andrew Mason (21), serves in the Princess of Wales' Second Battalion, came up with the idea for the calendar. Kelly said, "I got together with Andrew's sister Sam to do the shoot and it just snowballed from there. We were nervous at first but then we really started enjoying it and everyone had a laugh. My boyfriend is fine with it. He knows that it's for a good cause."

  1. Nothing sells sex, like a good gun? ;-]

  2. It's sad that these people have to go to such lengths to raise money to help injured service men and women because the governments who sent them into danger in the first place refuse to front the money for their care.
