Armed Forces Day 2019
1921 (Lewisham) Squadron proudly supported our veterans at the London Borough of Lewisham’s Armed Forces Day event.
Eight cadets from Lewisham Air Cadets attended. Cadet Sergeant Ramphul received his Deputy Lieutenant’s Certificate from Sir Steve Bullock DL, Lewisham’s Deputy Lord Lieutenant.
The cadets had a group photograph with Sir Steve and Janet Daby MP, our local Member for Parliament and had a great time engaging with the local community and veterans.
Armed Forces Day in the United Kingdom is an annual event celebrated in late June. It is to commemorate the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces. Veterans’ Day was first observed in 2006. Although an official event, it is not a public holiday in the UK.
