Armed Forces Day Service - Deal Pier

It was an honour to attend the Deal Armed Forces Day service on Sunday. There was a deeply moving Drumhead service on the apron of Deal Pier to recreate the traditional military church service conducted by soldiers in the field. The service honoured the work of the British Armed Forces and current service personnel and veterans who have fought for their country.

The sixth Annual Armed Forces Day took place on Saturday to raise awareness of the work of the Armed Forces. It was an excellent service and really well organised by the Royal British Legion and our own veterans' organisation here in Deal. The Armed Forces fight for our freedom and security and we should never forget the work they do. Armed Forces personel put their lives at risk every day to keep us safe. We celebrate their work and pay tribute to those service personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
