Raising the flag for Armed Forces Day

June 23, 2009

afd-logo-silverI took my daughter along to the ceremonial raising of the flag on Monday morning, again at Hastings Town Hall.

I feel it’s really important to come to events such as this with her.

Not only because of her own family history, but because we must keep alive down the generations an awareness of the sacrifice that our forebears have made on our behalves.

Our great British freedoms are something we oughtn’t to take for granted.

Armed Forces Day is celebrated across Britain on Saturday – 27 June.
