موږ خوښ یو چې افغان ژباړونکو ته خدمات وړاندې کوو چې د برتانیا د حکومت تر قوماندې لاندې زموږ له وسله والو ځواکونو سره خدمت کړی او څوک چې دا مهال په بریتانیا کې ژوند کوي او څوک یا د هغوی کورنۍ ناروغه ، ناروغه یا ټپي دي. هغه افغان ژباړونکي چې ملاتړ ته اړتیا لري باید لومړی د سولا اتحادیې سره اړیکه ونیسي .
