Armed Forces Day is a chance for everyone to show their support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. To celebrate the event, there will be a special civic ceremony at 10am on Saturday during which the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Cllr Frank Jonas, will raise the Armed Forces Day flag. Unfortunately, because of continuing pandemic restrictions, this will be an invitation-only event, on a smaller scale than usual and with social distancing.
We encourage you to take part by following our live stream of the event on our Facebook page.
