It's one of the sweetest, most intimate messages you'll hear all year. A love-sick British soldier calls his girlfriend from the front lines to propose. But when she doesn't pick up, he instead leaves the proposal as a voicemail. But there's just one problem: he didn't call his girlfriend.
According to the Daily Mail, the story gets even worse. Not only does the soldier admit he lost a fellow soldier and friend in a recent bombing, he apparently can't call again for another month.
The message was supposed to be for a woman named Samantha, but instead was left on the voicemail of 44-year-old mother of three Diane Potts:
The Daily Mail provides a transcript of the call:
'I should be back in three months so we can be together then.
'One of my guys has just been blown up, so I feel sad, really sad.
'I feel so sad that I didn't get to speak to you just now, but I'll speak to you next month.
'Don't ever forget I love you. I love you so much, I love you with all my heart and I was going to ask you, don't answer, obviously you can't answer, but will you marry me?
'I love you and I'm really sad I didn't get a chance to speak to you today, but you know I love you, don't you, I love you with all my heart.
'I don't know what to say babes. I can't wait until you give birth to my baby, my little soldier.
'I'll do everything in my heart and I'll try my hardest to fight to protect you... (inaudible)
'I've got to go back out here now.
Hi baby, it's me. I'm sorry I couldn't call you last month, but you know what it's like out here.
'I love you with all my heart, don't ever forget that, I love you, all right Samantha, I love you, bye bye.'
The Daily Mail says the paper is still trying to figure out the identities of the soldier and his girlfriend.
