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, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event.
Armed Forces Day is held on the last Saturday each June. For 2019, it will take place on Saturday 29 June. The celebrations begin on Monday 24 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.
The National Event 2019 will be held in Salisbury. Local events will also take place across the country.
