Armed Forces Day

We encourage support for the Armed Forces and celebrate our national Armed Forces Day and Reserves Day each year.

Armed Forces Week

Armed Forces Week starts on Monday 24 June and continues through to Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June, including Reserves Day on Wednesday 26 June.

This is a special week of events and activities held up and down the country, where we can show our appreciation and support of the Armed Forces community.

Be a part of Armed Forces Week

Celebrations and events are taking place across the UK to celebrate our Armed Forces, past, present and future. 

The national Armed Forces Day website has lots of information about how schools, businesses and families can join in events locally and across the UK. 

Rutland Flag Raising

Rutland County Council has organised an Armed Forces Flag Raising Ceremony on Monday 24 June at Oakham Castle.

The event starts as 10.20am and all are welcome to attend.

Back our Reservists

Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve as part of the military.

Employers are being asked to thank our Reservists across the UK for their dedication, professionalism and commitment to serving our country.

Whether you're a large organisation, a small business, a charity or self-employed, show your support on 26 June by holding a workplace event to celebrate Reserves Day. 

Reserves Day toolkits for businesses can be downloaded from the national Reserves Day website.
