The UK Armed Forces defend the UK and its interests, working around the world promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism. Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. Armed Forces Day takes place this year on 24 June, with celebrations beginning on 19 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is
raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. Reserves Day on 21 June will also provide an opportunity for the country to recognise our Reserve Forces. This year’s national event will be held in Liverpool, with local events taking place
across the country.
