Michael's Dispatches

Mt. Everest

Published: 04 November 2010


Before returning for third time to Afghanistan this year, have made another trip to the Himalaya.  I made this image of Mt. Everest about a week ago.  You are welcome to download a copy for personal use.

Please also buy a copy of my upcoming photobook, "Inside the Inferno."

You won't be disappointed.

Have really appreciated your work. My wife and I have been sending packages to our troops for the last 6 years and we often speak of sending some to the troops of our NATO partners. Unfortunately we have no contacts that are able to furnish names and addresses of deserving individuals. Would you be able to link us to a resource that would kindly share names and addresses of deployed troops we can support.
Thank you,
Dan & Margaret

Dan, Margaret,

As someone that has served in the British Army (22 years) I find it heartening that the loved ones of our allies think of us during the testing times.

Please try the following link, it's for the Soldiers, Sailors and Air Force Institute and they should be able to help you.
