Armed Forces Day 2012

Castle Point Council Offices

Armed Forces Day (formally known as Veterans Day) was held at the Castle Point Council Offices on the 25th June 2012 at 10:30 am. It was attended by Veterans and serving personnel together with some local school children. Local British Legion Standards were in attendance. A blank shot was fired from the 25 Pounder Field Gun by the T.A. and the Last Post sounded by a bugler to mark the beginning of a two minute silence, another shot was fired with Reveille to end the two minutes. The council laid on a cream tea in the offices for all guests. Photos taken by my daughter.
