Armed Forces Day

Dunbar — 26 June 2021

Dunbar Armed Forces Day

11:00 am to 3:00 pm

Dunbar Armed Forces Day 2021 will recognise the service and sacrifice of both Armed Services and Civilian Services starting with a parade including serving personnel, veterans, cadets and local NHS staff followed by a social event for parade participants. The parade will be led by the Dunbar British Legion Pipe Band and the salute taken by the Lord Lieutenant of East Lothian. Local shops will be encouraged to support the event with Armed Forces themed displays and we will have a static display of photographs and memorabilia commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE and VJ, which we were unable to do last year due to the Covid crisis. The local NHS staff who have been in the front line of the Covid crisis will be recognised at the social event.
