Armed Forces Day 29th June 2013

 

Armed Forces Day will be on Saturday, 29 June 2013.

 

It’s an opportunity to do two things. Firstly, to raise public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, Secondly, it gives the nation an opportunity to Show Your Support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets.

Across the country people are getting involved: communities hold local events and business show their support.

 

The National Event will be held in Nottingham, but there are many more events up and down the country being held in support of Armed Forces Day.
