Little Troopers Gazette
Calling all young writers, budding journalists and creative minds. Little Troopers needs you! We want children aged 5+ from across the British Armed Forces community to contribute to our quarterly newspaper called the Little Troopers Gazette.
The Little Troopers Gazette is packed with content written by and for military children and is a place where young people come together to share their experiences of military life in print, as well as reading about other little troopers around the world who are just like them.
You can write an article on any topic about military life! You might want to tell us about where you live, your favourite sport, your school, a military event you have been to like a pass-out parade or families day. You might even want to interview your military parent or grandparent.
Send us 100-150 words with your photo and we will consider it for the next edition.
If you’re stuck for ideas, take a look at our Press Pack below and print out some of our article templates.
Send articles and accompanying photos to [email protected]
