"I lived in Nepal, then we went to Brunei, then Malaysia."
"In my eyes, you have hundreds of friends in different places."
"I’m used to moving now and mixing with the children... I’ve done it so many times, it’s just a normal thing now."
"It's ok talking over skype and that, but sometimes you just want a hug when Dad is away."
"I’ve enjoyed going around to lots of places around the world, it's adventurous and exciting."
"My mum got a chalk board and it says how many sleeps on it with chalk, every minute it’s getting closer for him coming home."
"I don’t want him to get promoted... I want him to get promoted but I don’t want to leave."
"I might be going to boarding school so that I don’t change schools every few years."

"My parents were in the Army. My mum is a like a nurse and my dad went to the war in Afghanistan. I actually didn’t really know what he was doing so I was like, ‘Cool Dad, go there,’ but then I found out and thought, 'Thank God he came back alive.'"
"He signed off last week, so he will be done by the end of this year. He’s done 24 years. I find that better because he will be around a lot. He likes watching us playing rugby, so he will get to see us more."
"I’m going to a new place entirely. They don’t know anything about me and that’s a big restart and that’s really good for me."
"I moved to Wales because my dad was posted in the Army. I thought I would get bullied and I was shy when you meet new people, but I made some friends."
