What is Armed Forces Day?

Observed annually on the last Saturday of June, Armed Forces Day is a UK-wide celebration aiming to bring people together in order to celebrate the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who protect our country. It also takes the opportunity to show the nation’s appreciation towards veterans and military families, thanking them for the service they provided. 

 

Some Interesting Facts About the UK Armed Forces

  • According to the UK Government, there are approximately 2.4 million veterans in the UK. 
  • The most common mental health problems for ex-Service personnel are alcohol problems, depression and anxiety disorder, as reported by the Centre for Mental Health
  • The Royal British Legion’s estimate is that somewhere between three and six percent of homeless people in the UK have an armed forces background.

 

What we are doing to help

100% of the profits made by Wire Fence on the 25th June will be donated to a charity supporting the armed forces.
