Dear Santa

I know that itís still early

To send my Christmas list

But this year things are different

As I only have one wish

I wish that all the soldiers

Who are posted far from home

Will all be home for Christmas

Then they are not alone

If they have to stay there

Make sure they have some fun

Send lots of goodies and things to munch

Give presents to everyone

Please let them have the chance

To raise a glass and toast

All their loved ones back at home

To the ones they miss the most

Let them have a feast

Full of Christmas cheer

Ensure that they all have their fill

Washed down with ice cold beer

Santa I know they are soldiers

They have a job to do

But they deserve a Christmas

Thatís sent with love from you

So Santa now you have my wish

I have been good all year

Please send our soldiers all our love

And lots of Christmas cheer

The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment
