In pictures: Flag raising for Armed Forces Day in Windsor

A flag was raised over the Royal Borough's Windsor headquarters at York House in Sheet Street on Monday as the country prepared for tomorrow's sixth annual Armed Forces Day.


 

The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Richard Kellaway was attending a similar flag raising ceremony at Maidenhead Town Hall, while his deputy Cllr James Evans led the proceedings in Windsor.

Representatives of the armed forces, local Reserve forces, cadets and the Royal British Legion were all invited to attend with their standards at York House, as they also were in Maidenhead.

Speaking at Windsor, Cllr Evans said that Armed Forces Day would give the nation the opportunity to show its support for the men and women who served - from veterans to recruits.

He said: "Across the country people are getting involved, communities are holding local events, businesses are showing their support and to start proceedings local authorities are holding flag raising ceremonies this morning."

He said the flags would stay in place until after the weekend.
