People across the country will today show their support to men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. 

The aim of Armed Forces Day is provide a morale boost for troops in the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force, as well as their families.

Earlier this week West Mercia Police showed its support to this annual occasion and has flown an Armed Forces Day flag on a different West Mercia Police building on each day this week.

Reserves Day took place on June 27, to recognise the on-going effort of the reserve forces.

The Chairman of Wychavon District Council, Councillor Tony Rowley: “Armed Forces Day gives us all an opportunity to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from the troops currently serving to Service families, veterans and cadets. Every citizen in our country owes a deep debt of gratitude to the Armed Forces community.
