The Little Troopers Blog


Calling out to budding journalists!

We are looking for budding journalists to join our Little Troopers writing team. We’d love children over 5yrs old from the British Armed Forces community to send stories for the Little Troopers Gazette. This is a perfect summer holidays project as we are working on the next edition right now. We need your stories before the 14thAugust 2023.

The Little Troopers Gazette is packed with content written by and for military children. The newspaper is a place where young people can come together to share their experiences of military life in print. They can also read about other little troopers around the world who are just like them

Louise, founder of the charity said, “This will be our eighth edition of the gazette. The newspaper gets sent to families, schools and other organisations that have contact with military children. We love the fact that our little troopers are part of its production. If your child would like to be a published journalist send us your story over the next couple of weeks.”
