Armed Forces Day

Thank You for a Fantastic Armed Forces Day

After yet another fantastic Armed Forces Day, we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who showed their support this year.

Armed Forces Day 2014 was an overwhelming success and it couldn’t have been achieved without the efforts of people right across the UK. Whether you attended an event, held your own party or perhaps flew a flag, downloaded a Twibbon or signed up to our mass coordinated effort of support on Thunderclap, it was very much appreciated by all in the Service community, including current personnel, veterans, their families, and the Cadet Forces.

Thousands of people attended events up and down the country to celebrate the commitment, dedication and courage of our Armed Forces. Here are just a few images from the big day.
