Salute our Soldiers for Armed Forces Day!

Salute our Soldiers for Armed Forces Day!

Show your support for our soldiers this Armed Forces Day and #saluteoursoldiers!

Armed Forces Day is a chance for the public to show their support and gratitude for the men and women of our Armed Forces community: from serving troops (both Regular and Reserve) to veterans, families, and cadets. The national event takes place in Guildford on Saturday 27th June this year and will mark the culmination of a week of celebrations, which begins on Monday 22nd with the Armed Forces Day flag being raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.

As the National Charity of the British Army, we are supporting this fantastic event with our own campaign: #saluteoursoldiers. We’ve already had some magnificent support from the likes of Garrison Sgt Major Vern Stokes, James Blunt, Dan Snow, Blue, Levison Wood and Jonshon Beharry VC, so now we are asking you to send in a picture of yourself saluting, along with a message of support for our soldiers.

We are trying to get as many people involved as possible, so do it in your workplace, take a snap with your partner, rally around the family for a group shot and make sure your friends get involved too!

We are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so simply use the campaign hashtag - #saluteoursoldiers - to tag your snaps and upload them to any (or all) of these platforms! We would like to say a huge thank you for your support in advance; you will be making a truly considerable difference to the lives of thousands of men and women.
