Armed Forces Day

Happy St George’s day to Englishmen and women wherever they are, but especially those Royal Navy, Royal Marines and RFA connections.

It’s a day when the Senior Service gives thanks to the bravery of sailors and Royal Marines.

On this day in 1918 they stormed the German-occupied Belgian port of Zeebrugge in a bid to block it – and bottle up U-boats in their Flanders base.

As the flotilla headed into battle, the flagship HMS Warwick flashed: SAINT GEORGE FOR ENGLAND.

From HMS Vindictive, which led the assault, came the response: MAY WE GIVE THE DRAGON’S TAIL A DAMNED GOOD TWIST.
