Brave ladies in British Forces Germany have decided to bare all at BFBS Germany's radio studio to raise money for military charity Combat Stress.

Armed Buns, the brainchild of Tilly Lambert-Lee, is a charity calendar featuring photographs of British Army wives and girlfriends in various states of undress.

"So it's basically a calendar where you guys get your kit off?"

"Yeah pretty much."

And finally it’s the one you can’t get rid of... Tilly!! Name: Tilly Lambert-Lee Married to: a Royal Engineer Together...

When Tilly's husband Adam was in Afghanistan in 2010 she decided she needed something to focus on. That's when a friend suggested the idea of a naked charity calendar. It was a no brainer after the success of calendars like the 2000 Alternative WI Calendar which became the inspiration behind the film Calendar Girls. Which by the way you can still buy on eBay. If you have a spare £500.

On the Armed Buns Facebook page they express what motivates them to create a new calendar every year. It's not just someone with an iPhone taking photos. This is a professional calendar which has been sold five years in a row, raising more than £20,000 for forces charities.

"They risk their lives for us. The least we can do is risk our dignity for them!"

One of the months will be taken from a photoshoot at BFBS Germany's radio studios. Let's hope there are some strategically placed microphones and headphones. What's more, for all you eagle eyed radio fans reading this, yes, BFBS Germany presenter Milly Luxford is one of the models.

People who live in British Forces Germany (BFG) might recognize a few of the photo shoot locations which will include a fire station, on tanks, a Colonel's office and let's not forget guns and bums on the ranges.

The calendars will be available to buy around BFG in November, just in time to be the perfect Christmas stocking present.

"It’s about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark, it’s about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes."

It was cold but worth it!!! Can't wait for you all to see some sneaky shots!!

The charity to benefit from the sale of the calendar is Combat Stress which treats veterans suffering from mental health conditions, including PTSD, depression and anxiety.
