All are welcome to join the Mayor of Ealing, Councillor Tejinder Dhami, and councillors to celebrate Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30 June.
The parade will be taking place at 11am from Ealing Town Hall marching to Ealing Green and back. There will also be numerous stalls set up outside the town hall showcasing various aspects of the armed forces.
Armed Forces Day is a national occasion and gives everyone the opportunity to show their support for the men and women of the armed forces past and present, including currently service troops, service families, reservists, veterans and cadets. Armed forces personnel are deployed around the world, often in dangerous and difficult conditions. They are helping other nations’ humanitarian and peacekeeping efforts as well as protecting the UK.
Richard Kornicki CBE DL the Representative Deputy Lieutenant for the London Borough of Ealing will be presenting Deputy Lieutenant certificates to a number of cadets from different units in the borough at the conclusion of the march.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council said: “this parade is a celebration of the outstanding work the men and women of the armed forces do every day for our nation. Armed Forces Day is a chance to honour and respect the sacrifices they have made on our behalf.”
The UK Armed Forces defend the country and its interests. Every day of the year they are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers and providing security and fighting terrorism.
