Armed Forces Day - Saturday 27th June 

Today is Armed Forces Day. A day set aside for us to say 'Thank-You' to our Armed Forces community.


Thank-You for your dedication, hard work and commitment to serving and protecting your country.


Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families.


Due to COVID-19 the national Armed Forces Day event in Scarborough has been cancelled this year with many local ones cancelled as well.


During today we will be featuring videos and photos from various parades around the UK over the past few years.


Saluting our Forces

#SaluteOurForces is a simple way for anyone to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe. Last year, celebrities, members of the public and businesses all got involved.

To join in, simply send us a photo or video of yourself or one of your family saluting!

If you want to make sure you get it right, we've added some short videos links below to show you how the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force salute – so you can take your pick!
