Published: Monday, 21st June 2021

The borough showed its support for members of the armed forces, by raising the British Armed Forces Day flag on Monday 21 June 2021.

The Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Cllr Harry Humphrey, led tributes to current serving members of our armed forces as well as service families, veterans, reservists and adult cadet volunteers.

All three armed forces were represented at the ceremony in Tower Gardens, King’s Lynn, along with the Royal British Legion and Royal Air Forces Association.

The Mayor said: “I am honoured to observe British Armed Forces Day in this way as a mark of deep respect for our serving personnel and veterans. Our service personnel undertake their duties with pride and courage and I would like to thank them all for their service - for what they have done in the past, for what they are doing at present, and for what they are prepared to do in the future.”
