Today was Armed Forces Day and I was proud to be invited to attend the celebrations in Deal this morning. We gathered at the Pier for the march and official ceremony, and there was a great reception afterwards at the Royal British Legion Club on The Strand.
It was as moving as ever, and I always relish being able to pay tribute to all those who have served their country in the Armed Forces. It was particularly nice to be able to chat more informally at the Legion over a drink. It was a wonderful event that did a perfect job of honouring our troops.
