Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved.

Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June and this year it was on Saturday 25th June .

Armed Forces Day celebrations began on Monday 20 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.
