Armed Forces Day 2019

Armed Forces Day RAF

This Saturday (June 29th) marks the annual Armed Forces Day in the UK. Providing an opportunity for all of us to show our support to the men and women who make up the UK’s Armed Forces community. From serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

The first day in the United Kingdom took place in 2009. The date was chosen as it marked the day after the anniversary of the first investiture ceremony for the Victoria Cross military medal for heroism. Held on the 26th June 1857, since then the day takes place on the last Saturday each June.
