Today’s ‘This is Derbyshire’ & the ‘Derby Telegraph’ feature an article on Major Ben Ingham. Senior reporter, Martin Naylor saw the orginal articles on PARWICH.ORG and followed up a report for the newspaper.
Taliban-fighting major who misses the clean air of home
A SOLDIER from Derbyshire has told of his “challenging, stressful but rewarding” role fighting the Taliban.
Major Ben Ingham has been keeping his family and friends up to date with his exploits in war-torn Afghanistan by sending regular emails and photos to his village’s website.
In his online dispatches to http://www.parwich.org, he tells how he is working at NATO headquarters in the capital Kabul.
The exact nature of the 37-year-old’s role is secret but his reports offer a fascinating insight into a soldier’s life in Afghanistan.

Poppy has gone out to grass and her milk yield has increased. Is there anyone who would like to try some raw Jersey milk? I call into the village every day to deliver milk to a group of stalwart Poppy milk drinkers but if anyone else would like to try it, please contact me on 01629 540320 or email the blog team. This is free – better than pouring the excess down the drain! Fiona
