Dan Snow calls on Friends of the Forces to step forward

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

From the Royal British Legion site:

TV presenter Dan Snow, the rising star of BBC history specials and The One Show, has joined Prince Harry in backing The Royal British Legion’s Friends of the Forces Awards.

Dan, who has reported from historic British battlefields across the globe, knows better than most, the special relationship between the UK and its Armed Forces.

“The British Armed Forces have shaped our country’s history and have always enjoyed the nation’s support,” he said, shortly after filming his recent series, The Empire of the Seas. “Now’s the time to recognise those who make an exceptional effort to respect and support our Armed Forces.”

Dan will be presenting the Friends of the Forces national awards ceremony in July and urged people to come forward with nominations.
