Armed Forces Day

Post  Mk3rob on Fri Jun 26, 2009 10:25 am

Honouring Britain’s Armed Forces Past, Present and Future

The first Armed forces day is on 27 june 2009. It's an opportunity for the nation to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from veterans to recruits, and from currently serving troops to the Service families.

Across the UK, people are getting involved: communities are holding local events and businesses are showing their support through promotional offers. The MOD is also encouraging councils, businesses and homes across the country to show their support for Britains Armed Forces by flying a special flag designed for Armed Forces Day.

To kick off the proceedings, hundreds of local councils have pledged to raise the Armed Forces Day Flag at 10:30 am on 27 June 2009.

Fly the Flag

The design of the Armed Forces Day flag is based on the Union Jack and it measures 5ft by 3ft. Flags cost £10, which includes VAT, postage and packaging to UK addresses. The flag supplier, Piggotts, Will donate £1 from every sale to the Forces Childrens Trust – a charity devoted to helping dependant children that have lost a parent whilst serving with the Armed Forces.

Those interested in ordering an Armed Forces Day Flag should visit http://www.piggotts.co.uk or email armedforcesdayflag@piggots.co.uk

For the National Event, The Historic Dockyard Chatham opens its doors, so you can learn more about the Army, Navy and RAF, meet members of local units and lunch out surrounded by history. Chatham is just one event being held in support of Armed Forces Day; find out whats going on near you by visiting the Events Calendar at www.armedforcesday.org.uk.

We (the Whitwick RBL branch) have organised a Drumhead Service for AFD. Smile

If anyone wants to come it's at The Methodist Church in the village (at the foot of Hall Lane) at 2pm. After the service there's music from a brass band, raffles, and refreshments.
All monies raised on the day will go to Help For Heroes.



There's always a couple of Union flags flying in the back of my Jimny, and we'll be flying the one at home as well. Cool
