With their victory rolls and perfect pouts, 12 military wives, of all shapes and sizes have transformed themselves into vintage pin-ups to raise money to support service families.

Wives and girlfriends of military personnel - ranging from size 8 to size 20 - have created a glamorous 1950s-inspired calendar in support of the SSAFA - a charity which offers support to serving and former military personnel and their families.

Lancashire-based project manager Laura Hindle, who poses as Mrs July, said: “We wanted it to be sexy and glamorous without the need for nudity or provocative poses.

“All the women are amateur models but despite their inexperience, each and every woman looks sensational, proudly representing the thousands of WAGs across the UK.

“Miss November is an active service woman, serving as a military musician in the Band of the Corps of the Royal Engineers in Brompton Barracks, Kent. We felt honoured to have an active serving member of the army pose, with the Royal British Legion poppies in remembrance of veterans who have given their lives for Queen and Country.”

Proceeds from the calendar will go to support the SSAFA, which has a base at Fulwood Barracks and provides “lifelong support to our forces and their families”.

The charity has a network of trained volunteers on Army, RAF and Naval bases in the UK and around the world to provide support for serving and ex-serving members of the armed forces and their families.

Laura, who lives in Weeton, says: “ Not only does SSAFA provide unrivalled support to our heroes (land, sea and air), but they offer first class assistance to the people who stand behind them, through the laughter and the tears.”

The calender retails for £8.65, with £5 donated directly to SSAFA and £3.65 to cover printing costs. The calendar is available at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corps-Blimey-Pin-ups-on-Parade-2014-Charity-Calendar-for-SSAFA-Forces-Help-/161119041498
