Anyone watch the TV programme last night about Gary Barlow's visit to Camp Bastion?
regardless of what you think of him or his music, the morale boost and enjoyment the small concert he put on brought to the troops there could not be denied. There was a short mention of the planning that went into getting him out there lasting months.
