A Welsh soldier (Cpl James Griffiths) sent in this email to Tan y Castell Foods and being a Welsh and Proud company, they were delighted to fulfill this request and send their Welsh Cakes to support our troops in Afghanistan:
I am sending you this email to let you know how disappointed I am in my
English friends, that I am deployed with on the last Operation in
Not a single one of these guys I am here with knows what a welshcake is!
This stemmed from a conversation that began by me saying I can’t wait to
get back and have some welshcakes. I was wondering that being from the
county, and knowing these are the best brand, is there any chance you are
able to send them to me here at a Freepost BFPO address?
Between you and the readily available version Braces sell in England, you
guys win hands down. Braces use far too much cinnamon for starters.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Cpl James Griffiths.’
