Melbourne, April 21 (ANI): Service Wives and Girlfriends (SWAGs) have raised 26,000pounds through their racy charity calendar to help injured war heroes and women wounded in strife-torn Afghanistan and Iraq.
The effort saw 50 wives and girlfriends of men from the three Armed Services, stripping off to be snapped at bases and training centres in Hampshire.
However, they were careful enough to save their modesty by strategically placing pieces of military equipment.
Kelly Monk, 20, whose boyfriend Andrew Mason, 21, serves in the 2nd Battalion the Princess of Wales's Regiment, came up with the idea for the shoot.
"I got together with Andrew's sister, Sam, to do the shoot and it just snowballed from there," the Daily Telegraph quoted Kelly, as saying
She added: "We were nervous at first, but then we really started enjoying it and everyone had a laugh. My boyfriend is fine with it.
"He knows that it's for a good cause."
Lisa Fellows-Patel, 43, said: "An old schoolfriend is in the Army and was posted to Afghanistan.
"I felt the only way I could truly support him from home was to do charity work for Help For Heroes and as I model for fun a girlfriend suggested I help with the calendar."
"The night before, I was extremely nervous but told myself that if the armed forces are overseas fighting on my behalf I would have the courage to get naked and do my bit," she added. (ANI)
