Christmas in Afghanistan


Officer Cadet Fay Dickinson and Captain (N) Christopher Dickinson celebrated Christmas in November before Captain Dickinson left for Kabul, Afghanistan.

During the Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph, this QCT writer met Fay Dickinson, resplendent in her Scarlet, and her father Captain (N) Christopher Dickinson. When I asked why they and other family members and friends were together at the ceremony on that day, Capt. Dickinson told me they were celebrating an early Christmas as he would be in Afghanistan by the end of November.
