BOGNOR REGIS ARMED FORCES DAY
Sunday 18 JUNE 2017
9.30 am to 5.00 pm
Once again, the people of Bognor Regis will be honouring our Armed Forces, past, present and future.
Did a member of your family serve in any of the United Kingdom's Armed Forces? Are you or do you have a relative serving today?
The chances are you have had or do. With the conflicts our country has been involved in over the last 100 years, it is likely someone will have either volunteered or been conscripted to serve King, Queen and Country, and has contributed to the freedom, principles and quality of life we enjoy today. If they volunteered, they knowingly did something you do not normally do if you apply for a job in other areas. They offered to lay down their lives for you and me. If they had been conscripted, they knew what was expected of them. National Servicemen in the 50's overwhelmingly threw themselves into the task and were true Brothers-in-Arms.
Armed Forces' Day is the opportunity to honour all the members of your family and others who served the nation, past, present and future.
