A brainwave that occurred to 65-year-old former Harrier pilot Andy Dakin while out walking his dog has led to almost 10,000 Bibles being given to Ukrainian military being trained in the UK.

Gulf War veteran Dakin is the Executive Director of the Naval & Military Bible Society (NMBS), which has been providing Bibles to the British armed forces since 1779. When it became apparent that the Ukraine conflict would not end as quickly as some initially predicted, the NMBS decided to offer spiritual support to Ukraine’s frontline combatants in the form of Bibles in their own language.
