Tenth Annual Armed Forces Day celebrated across the country

Men and women from the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force were recognised across the country as hundreds of events were held to mark the tenth annual Armed Forces Day.

The Personnel from the Armed Forces, both Regulars and Reserves, were lauded for their roles alongside the wider defence family including cadets and veterans.

The National Event took place in Llandudno, North Wales, attended by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne The Princess Royal, representing the Queen and the Royal Family. Prime Minister Theresa May and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson also attended the event, alongside the thousands of attendees who will gather to watch parades, displays and a record number of flypasts.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Today we mark the tenth Armed Forces Day and it remains a valuable opportunity to honour our troops who work so hard to keep us safe. Our servicemen and women are on hand every hour of every day to protect us from the threats we face and today I encourage people across the UK to come together and salute them for their tireless commitment.

“I commend Llandudno for an outstanding event and thank organisers across the country for their efforts to mark Armed Forces Day.”
