Planning a radio airwaves assault in the run up to Christmas, a group of Military Voices have recorded a video at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.

The song, '1914 – A Christmas Carol,' composed by Chris Eaton celebrates the power of Christmas to bring peace in the midst of war and commemorates those who fought in World War One.

The song is raising money for The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers' Charity, and the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and hopes to battle its way to Number One in the 100th anniversary year of the Great War. It will be available for pre-order online later this month. For more information:
