Armed Forces Flag-Raising
Members of the Armed Services, veterans and representatives of the Royal British Legion gathered outside County Hall in Haverfordwest on Monday for a special flag-raising ceremony.
The ceremony marked Armed Forces Day, which will be celebrated on Saturday June 25th.
Armed Forces Day – held for the eighth time – is an opportunity for the nation to show support for its servicemen and women – from veterans to serving soldiers and their families.
Throughout this week- and in common with other local authorities throughout the country – Pembrokeshire County Council is flying the Armed Forces Flag on one of its four flagpoles.
At Monday’s ceremony Pembrokeshire County Council’s Chairman, Councillor Tony Brinsden, paid tribute to the Forces, noting that since the Second World War more than 16,000 British servicemen and women have died in action around the world.
Reverend Geoffrey Eynon, Chaplain of the Royal British Legion, led the gathering in prayer.
Those attending the ceremony included a Deputy Lieutenant of Dyfed, Major George Hancock.
