英國婦女動員 贈送7千毛帽 溫暖前線官兵


Colourful: Troops from 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment don their multi-coloured hats for a group photo.

2012 0417 轉譯每日郵報

據英國《每日郵報》3月22日報導,英國一名女子在過去2年間,為駐阿英軍士兵送去了7000多頂手織的毛線帽子,因為她不希望士兵們在前線挨凍。她也被士兵們親切的稱為「超級編織者」。

這位女子名叫蒂妮‧塞爾比(Tiny Selby),現年50歲,來自英國威爾士加地夫。塞爾比說:「我從15歲開始就會織毛線,我非常喜歡這項工作。有一天我讀到有關阿富汗士兵的故事,瞭解到那邊的冬天非常寒冷,遂萌生了為他們織帽子的想法。我與一家當地軍營聯係,他們表示士兵們肯定會喜歡。現在我已經向阿富汗送出數千頂帽子。」

這些帽子中,塞爾比親手編織了數百頂,後來,她又召集許多與她一起跳舞的女性,圍在一起織帽子。她目前已經召集了40名為軍隊士兵織帽子的女性。作為特別禮物,塞爾比經常在帽子中夾帶巧克力棒,給士兵一點兒驚喜。她還曾送帽子給哈利王子,但不知道他是否戴過。塞爾比說:「我收到許多感謝信,裏面還有士兵們帶著帽子拍攝的照片。」

塞爾比說:「我們盡可能讓每頂帽子都不同,現在這些帽子已經成為一種流行時尚。」這些帽子的唯一要求就是不要加入太多白色或熒光色,以便讓戴著它們的士兵不會被輕易發現。

Keep calm and carry on knitting: Meet the woman who has recruited a small army to make more than 7,000 woolly hats for British troops in Afghanistan

They are used to fighting the Taliban.

But British troops in Afghanistan may now be fighting each other over a collection of woolly hats made by super-knitter Tiny Selby.

The 50-year-old from Penarth, near Cardiff in Wales, has sent no less than 7,000 colourful beanies to the warzone in the last two years.

She started making 'hats 4 heroes' because she was didn't want the soldiers to get cold on the frontline.

Ms Selby said: 'I have been knitting since I was 15-years-old - I absolutely love it. One day I was reading about the soldiers in Afghanistan and how cold it gets in the winter. Then I came up with the idea of knitting hats for them.


Hats 4 Heroes: It may be searingly hot in the day but at night and in the winter the temperature plummets. But thanks to Tina Selby's handmade woolly hats these boys won't feel the cold while serving in Afghanistan.

'I contacted a local barracks and they said the soldiers would love them. Now I have sent literally thousands of hats to Afghanistan and the troops love them.'

Ms Selby has made hundreds of hats herself, but has also called on women from her line dancing group to pick up their needles and do their bit. She currently has more than 40 recruits knitting and purling for the troops.

For an extra treat Ms Selby always puts in a bar of chocolate with her hats - Mars bars and Kit Kats - to give the soldiers a bit of a pick me up.

She has also just sent a hat to Prince Harry, although whether he has worn it is unconfirmed.

She said: 'I have received lovely thank you letters and snaps of them all wearing their multi-coloured hats.


Full-time job: Ms Selby has made hundreds of hats herself, but also calls on her own little army - more than 40 knitters - recruited from her line dancing group to help out.

'I have now got dozens of knitters helping me - we try to make every hat different. They are seen as something of a fashion statement now.'

The only rules Tina abides by are not to put too much white in them - and no fluorescent colours - so that they can't be easily seen.

Army spokesman Gavin O'Connor said: 'It is testament to the strength of the military covenant in the country.

'It's great that there are so many people out there who recognise the debt we owe our armed forces and are prepared to play their part.'


Multitasking: Ms Selby's fellow knitters even find time to knit the hats while taking their line dancing class.

如果軍方能做到讓民眾都尊敬我們或是信服我們,不一定要送東西。
只要一份尊敬一聲謝謝 身為軍人的人都會很開心吧? Rolling Eyes

簡單的問候,能夠激發戰士多少強勇

發表  沈長融 于 周五 4月 27, 2012 1:03 am

是啊~
在惡劣環境之中若是能收到遠方的家人問候
是否著實使人再繼續戰鬥呢?
更何況是一名素未謀面的陌生人
這又是何等的感動?

確實,那些毛帽只能罩住的 是士兵的頭部軀殼
但是內在效應卻強烈的發酵
激勵人心!!
令人感到備受尊重
進而能夠持續的努力下去
