Christmas is a time when our thoughts turn to friends and family at home and overseas.

It’s tough for anyone to be away from their loved ones at this time of year, and none more so than the dedicated servicemen and women whose work can keep them away from home for many months on end.

This year the Observer & Advertiser is giving readers the chance to send a special message to any loved ones in the Armed Forces who will be away on duty this Christmas.

We’ll print all your messages in our December 23 edition, and publish them on our website on Christmas Day so your message will reach them wherever they are.

Tell us who your message is for, what you’d like to say and who it’s from by emailing and we’ll do the rest.

Send us a family picture and we’ll include that with your message too.

Alternatively, you can film a video message that we’ll post on our website.

You can upload videos by using the Share Your Story tool halfway down the homepage of our website,

All messages must be sent to us by noon on Friday December 19.
