Nativity play for dads in 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.
