Armed Forces Day takes place in Salisbury on Sunday June 26 in the Market Place and visitors can expect to see military displays including those from 32 Regiment Royal Artillery and Military Intelligence.

The event provides the community the opportunity to show support for serving soldiers as well as to veterans, cadets and service families.

Mayor Tom Corbin said: “It is a wonderful event for people to come together. There is plenty for families and for children with face painting and some fun fair rides and food and drinks stalls will be there.

“It is good for those who are interested in seeing what life is like in the military. It will be a good event for local citizens to support.”

Military stalls, charities, street performers, live music and workshops are all planned, and the Army Medical Services Band will perform at 11.30 am for an hour.
