ONE hundred years on from the first Christmas in the trenches of the Great War, a host of military voices have joined the battle for the Christmas number one.

The song, 1914 - The Carol Of Christmas, celebrates the power of Christmas to bring peace in the midst of conflict and commemorates those who fought in the First World War.

The group, called Military Voices, draws its members from the RAF Spitfire Choir, as well as featuring the Royal Marines Corps of Drums and representatives from the Sea Cadets, the Army Cadet Force and the Air Training Corps.

The song is raising money for the Portsmouth-based Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity among others.
