Armed Forces Day in Deal

It was a privilege to attend the celebration for Armed Forces Day in Deal. It was an excellent event and really well organised the Royal British Legion and by our own veterans' organisation here in Deal.

The Deal Flag was hoisted as a show of support at 10:30am. The next day, local veterans and cadets paraded past before organising a traditional drumhead service on Deal Pier. It's fantastic to see so many people pay tribute to our Armed Forces and the work fighting for our freedom and security.

Armed Forces personnel put their lives at risk every day to keep us safe. It was the 7th Annual Armed Force Day and I pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Let's keep up a great tradition.
