Armed Forces Day Flag Raising Ceremony

Monday 25 June 2012

Armed Forces Week 2012 was marked with a Flag Raising Ceremony at The Great Hall, Winchester.  

The aims of this annual event are to raise public awareness of the military and to give local communities the opportunity to show their support for the Armed Forces. Prior to the ceremony music was provided in the City Centre by the Band of the Royal Corps of Signals which then led a Tri-Service parade through the City to Castle Yard, outside The Great Hall.
