A celebration to honour our Armed Forces took place on Monday, 19 June, with the Flying of the Armed Forces Day flag from Easthampstead House, Bracknell by the Mayor of Bracknell Forest, Cllr Mrs Tina McKenzie-Boyle.
Each year the dedication, commitment and sacrifice of the Armed Forces, past and present, are honoured across the country. Armed Forces personnel are deployed worldwide and often spend a long time away from their families and friends in dangerous and challenging situations.
Support is available locally to serving military personnel, veterans and their families through the Bracknell Forest Civilian Military Partnership which was established by the council and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. You can find more information about Armed Forces support on our webpage.
Cllr Tina McKenzie-Boyle said:
The armed forces make great sacrifices to protect this country and serve both in the UK as well as overseas. It was a privilege to raise the flag today in honour of these men and women who serve this country with such courage. I would like to thank current serving members of the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and British Army as well as veterans and their families for their strength, perseverance and bravery.
