Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June. In 2018, it will take place on Saturday 30 June.
Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 25 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. Reserves Day on 27 June will also provide an opportunity for the country to recognise our Reserve Forces.
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.
