'I'm slowly, slowly getting him back'
We meet the mother of a veteran who served in Afghanistan
Dear members — for today’s members-only story, Mollie went to Sefton Veterans Club to meet Lisa, the mother of a soldier who fought in Afghanistan. The story is about the cruel damage of war and what it can do to families long after a soldier has returned home. Merseyside is a huge recruiting ground for the armed forces, but it’s not often we read about what active service can do to loved ones.
Before that, we have a mini briefing with an update on the latest Covid-19 numbers, some local news in brief and a couple of festive things to do this week.
