Armed Forces Day 2017

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: Service personnel and their families, reservists, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event to throwing a party or local event.


Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June.  This year, it will take place on Saturday 24 June. Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 19 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.


The National Event will be held in Liverpool and local events will be taking place across the country.
