The idea to create a nativity play for Marines in Afghanistan was the idea of family support worker Nicky Chubb. She says it will help create a two-way communication with children and their fathers.
On Christmas day Royal Marines serving with the 40 Commando will receive a surprise gift from their children.
The youngsters from Taunton have recorded their nativity play which is on its way to Afghanistan.
It's the Christmas tradition that many parents look forward to but not everyone will be able to see their child's school nativity in person.
For the Royal Marines serving with 40 Commando, spending Christmas away from home isn't easy, so their families have come up with a way to send a little bit of Christmas to Afghanistan. A DVD of their children's nativity play will be sent to Afghanistan.
