In the video, Bowles reveals that it’s an honor to act as Patron of the British Forces Broadcasting Service. “I’m delighted to have this opportunity to speak to you all for the first time as a very proud Patron of the British Forces Broadcasting Service,” she says. “For 75 years, the BFBS has championed our wonderful Armed Forces and shone a spotlight on their vital work.”
She continues, “Spanning 15 time zones, from the deserts of the Middle East to the windswept Falkland Islands, you are a truly worldwide organization that supports our service men and women wherever they may find themselves. You also, of course, support service families who face immense obstacles.”
Bowles went on to explain why she’s so passionate about the Armed Forces, adding, “I know a little of the importance of maintaining the connection between service personnel and family because during the second World War, my father was held as a prisoner of war in Germany.”
She says, “The men could cope with almost anything as long as they were not deprived of some form of contact with home.”
This new partnership sounds right up her alley.
