Brit soldier in Iraq misses girlfriend in Belize

Almost two weeks into the war in Iraq our coverage has been limited to several interviews with the families of Belizean servicemen serving on the front. Today, however, we have something a little different…It is a communication from the front. No, not a fuzzy videophone report from a News 5 embedded reporter, this message comes from an ordinary British soldier in the Royal Irish Regiment, somewhere in the Iraqi desert. It seems he has a girlfriend of three and a half years standing that he left behind in Belize. Her name is Chrissy and he has asked us to broadcast the following message, certain that she is watching this broadcast.

“Chrissy,” he declares, “I love you with all my heart and cannot wait to see you again.” It is signed “Love, Mez”.

Sergeant Mez Merrey, we wish you God speed and trust that you—and Christine Tupper–will be reunited as soon as possible.
