Watford flying the flag to honour the Armed Forces
Watford Borough Council and the Chairman of the Council, Cllr Asif Khan are flying the Armed Forces flag today (24 June 2019) to show appreciation of the work of servicemen and women past and present.
It was held as part of Armed Forces Day, the annual national campaign that gives everyone the opportunity to show their support for the men and women of the Armed Forces, including currently serving troops, Service families, Reservists, veterans and cadets.
Similar events have been taking place across the UK, enabling people to come out and show their support, and giving a much-valued morale boost for Armed Forces personnel and their families.
Chairman of the Council, Cllr Asif Khan said "I want to say on behalf of Watford as a town and its people, to all of our veterans, service personnel, reserves and their families, whether you are at home or overseas, thank you for all that you do. There is pride in our town for those who are serving in our armed forces and respect for our veterans."
The UK Armed Forces defend the country and its interests. Every day of the year they are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers and providing security and fighting terrorism. For more information, visit www.armedforcesday.org.uk
