Valentinersquos message from Army captain in Afghanistan for

AN Army captain serving in Afghanistan sent a special Valentine&rsquos Day message to his loved one in Huddersfield.

Capt David Neville, from Wigan, was fighting the Taliban instead of playing Romeo this year. But the 25-year-old asked the Examiner to help convey his heartfelt feelings to his Huddersfield lass &ndash known only as Gemma. He said: &ldquoI&rsquove been away from my wonderfully patient girlfriend for another seven months and I&rsquom looking forward to a real blow-out holiday &ndash somewhere hot and sandy, somewhere you can drink ridiculous cocktails and swim in the sea and where you don&rsquot need to wear body armour on the plane there. &ldquoI&rsquom lucky to have my rest and recuperation break coming up in a few days&rsquo time so I want to send Gemma a special Valentine&rsquos message for when I see her.&rdquo His message to Gemma reads: &ldquoTo the Princess of Yorkshire, I&rsquom really looking forward to seeing you. Get ready to rule London next weekend! And whichever tropical beach you choose for summer leave (as long as it isn&rsquot Scarborough). All my love, always Xxxxxxx.&rdquo

David is serving with the 57 Battery Royal Artillery.
