Danny Nightingale, the SAS sniper jailed for illegally a pistol, has issued a statement in which he says he has been overwhelmed by public support.
I spoke to Sally who was very emotional but happy about the early appeal.
I have been trained to prepare for the worst so cannot allow myself to get optimistic about how things may unfold.
I remain overwhelmed by the public support - I've written thank you notes to over 200 people who have sent letters to me.
I obviously want to be back with my family as soon as possible but realise this is now a matter for the court next week.
