Armed Forces Week 2017

Tim Husband Events, Getting you back to work, Military

AFD 2017

We will be attending many events this Armed Forces Week to spread the word about our vital support for veterans, as well as to celebrate our Armed Forces community.

This week is Armed Forces Week, and celebratory and informational events are happening up and down the country. Don’t miss out on a great family day out; there is lots of entertainment on offer, from fly pasts to military marches and displays. The events are also educational, providing information to ex-Service people and members of the public about the organisations that support our Armed Forces.

You can find out which events are happening near you on the Armed Forces Day website. Reserves day is also on Wednesday 21st June.
