"I welcome this initiative and believe that the idea of a book of jokes - The Laughing Soldier - is inspired! I send you my very best wishes for the success of this venture."
Rt. Hon. David Cameron MP - Prime Minister

Our armed forces have a legendary sense of humour, dating back over generations of servicemen and women. The Laughing Soldier: The British Forces Jokebook, in aid of Project 65 – The Veteran's Charity, is a collection of jokes, along with messages of support for our brave and heroic troops, sent in by people all over the world. Contributors include serving personnel, veterans and their families, the general public and famous celebrities such as Alan Titchmarsh, comedians such as Milton Jones, MPs, including George Osborne, all inspired by the Armed Forces’ strength and capacity for finding humour in the toughest of situations.

With a foreword by Al Murray – The Pub Landlord – and ex-marine Mark Ormrod, the Afghanistan hero who lost his legs and right arm in a landmine explosion and now best-selling author of Man Down, and illustrated with cartoons by The Comic Stripper, The Laughing Soldier’s collection of jokes will lift both the spirits of those serving and their families, and all of us who are thinking of them.

With heartfelt messages conveying the warmth and affection the British public has for our Armed Forces and a donation made to Project 65 from the sale of every book – helping them continue their important work in supporting and caring for our troops – anyone reading this book will not only smile, but feel truly proud of our laughing soldiers across the world.

REVIEWS

I hope the many messages of support will also show our troops just how proud we all are of the incredible job they are doing.
Sixth Sense

What better way to think of them than to buy this book and laugh at the 'clean' and the 'dirty' jokes that have been brought together for their benefit. Richly rewarding so please support.

As well as raising money, the book also aims to raise morale, as hundreds of of free copies are also being sent to troops serving in Afghanistan.
