Summary: For every brave soldier risking their life for Queen and country, there is the subtle heroism of the women back at base in Britain. DAFFODIL GIRLS is the story of the women behind the soldiers of the 2nd Battalion Royal Welsh. Kitty Dimbleby describes the lot of a soldier's wife: a long-distance relationship with someone who, daily, is in danger. When he's away, having to deal with everyday family life. Then having to readjust to your partner's return; perhaps come to terms with the horrors they have encountered. And how do you cope if he doesn't come back at all? Kitty Dimbleby follows these women though the cycle of a regiment's tour of duty: the preparation for departure, the six months of action and the emotional renunion.
