Torbay Armed Forces Day will be on Saturday, 21 June 2014
Armed Forces Day (previously known as Veterans’ Day) is an annual event celebrated in late June to commemorate the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces.
Veterans’ Day was first observed in 2006. The name was changed to Armed Forces Day in 2009.
It’s an opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and gives the nation an opportunity to Show Your Support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
