We thought we’d have to wait till November at least for another nude calendar story. But with their forces occupied in Afghanistan and elsewhere, the British Armed Forces needed immediate bucking-up. So a group of military wives have created the Garrison Girls calendar, on which the Daily Mail today reports (NSFW, though barely), for which they posed nude with flags, boots, caps, and other martial and patriotic paraphernalia for Mick Payton (“currently rated in Europe as the UK’s no.1 erotic photographer”) to raise funds for Help for Heroes and Combat Stress, which gives comfort and support to returning troops. (This sort of thing has been tried by our own nation’s military wives, not always with as happy results.) The GGs have a Facebook site and Twitter feed if you want to thank them.
