Armed Forces Day 2019
This Saturday (June 29) marks the annual Armed Forces Day in the UK. Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
The first Armed Forces Day in the United Kingdom took place on 27 June 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 26 June 1857, since then Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June.
The National Event for 2019 is being held in Salisbury, with local events taking place across the country, the Armed Forces Day website details every event and parade to mark the occasion in the UK including:
The organisers are encouraging people to Salute Our Forces. #SaluteOurForces is a simple way for anyone to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe.
