Armed Forces DayBack
Published on August 14th, 2013 | by admin
Plymouth Armed Forces Day is an annual event held in support of the national Armed Forces Day initiative.
On Saturday 28 June 2013 set against the stunning natural backdrop of the Plymouth Sound, Plymouth hosted an Armed Forces Day Event on Plymouth Hoe.
This provided a unique opportunity to see the Armed Forces up-close and featured displays from current personnel, veterans, cadet forces, support agencies and charities.
The focus and intention of the day was to show our ‘thanks’, raise awareness of and support for our Armed Forces community and celebrate the outstanding contribution it makes to our country.
Special events and activities take place across the city each year to raise awareness of the city’s service community and celebrate the outstanding contribution it makes to our country, as well as forge closer links between the armed forces and young people.
The city welcomed thousands of visitors from home and abroad to join in honouring and paying tribute to the dedication of the nation’s serving personnel, veterans and their families, as well as the many agencies that support them.
