The 100 day countdown to Armed Forces Day began today, with our National Event hosts Cleethorpes kicking celebrations off in style.
To mark the milestone, children from a local school gathered with military personnel, cadets and dignitaries at the Armed Forces Gate on the Cleethorpes seafront to raise the Union Flag and the flags of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy.
In a nod to the Armed Forces Day call to #SaluteOurForces, service personnel from all three Services taught the children how to salute like a member of the military.
And in a final spectacular flourish, an RAF Tornado flew over the crowd at midday, with everyone saluting the aircraft as it passed overhead.
