Veterans celebrate Armed Forces Day

Solihull Editorial 3rd Jul, 2023   0

VETERANS at a Solihull care home raised the Armed Forces Day flag in honour of fellow comrades and serving personnel.

Residents at The Royal Star and Garter, which cares for veterans and their loved ones living with dementia or disability, were entertained by jazz and rock n’ roll singer Jeep Johnson.

The Armed Forces Day flag at the Tudor Coppice home was raised by Brian Bucknall, who enjoyed a 36-year career in the Army.

Some residents also attended the opening of a Poppy Path at the Armed Forces Community Garden.

Armed Forces Day commemorates the service of men and women in the British military, from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
