MP Steve Pound is backing a national campaign to collect a million video messages of support for troops in Afghanistan.
The Ealing North MP has taken part in the Royal British Legion's Faces to the Forces campaign.
"I want you to know that every single one of us here appreciates, values and respects the work that you are doing," he said in his message. "There is nothing more than anyone can do than to put their life on the line for the country. Every single one of you is a hero and we're looking forward to welcoming you home."
The video messages will create an online wall and it is hoped more than a million people will take part in the unique project. To leave a message, visit www.winkball.com
