King Charles has released a message on the occasion of Armed Forces Day, which takes place today.

He wrote, “The Queen and I join many around the United Kingdom in celebrating Armed Forces Day, recognising the immense and dedicated contribution of our military both at home and overseas.

“Today provides a particularly valuable opportunity to acknowledge publicly the selfless service and sacrifice made each day by our Armed Forces personnel to keep this nation safe.  We also remember, with gratitude, the countless veterans who continue to support the ethos of the Armed Forces long after they leave the Service.

“Having trained, and served, in both the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force, and having had such close affiliations over the course of the last forty-seven years as Colonel or Colonel-in-Chief of multiple regiments within the British Army, I know only too well of the deep pride our service personnel take in their duty, so superbly shown during our recent Coronation.

“As your Commander-in-Chief, I send my warmest good wishes to you all, your families, and the entire Armed Forces community on this special day.


According to the official website of Armed Forces Day, the day is held as “Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families.”
