Armed Forces Day 24th June 2017


Last year’s event took place on Saturday 25th of June.This was the 5th year that we have attended this event at the Paddocks, Canvey Island. We were one of the groups  that were allocated to the main Hall including the Bay museum and The Canvey Community archive . There was a service outside at 11.00 with a military band and a march-past consisting of Armed Forces Veterans led by a Pipe Band. Before and  after the service we had a lot of visitors and veterans to our stand. Most were interested in Morse code but the International Space Station and Amateur Radio in general also generated a lot of questions. Our Local MP, Rebecca Harris, came over to our table for a chat. All our members that attended said it makes us aware of the contribution made to our country by those who serve, or have served, in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. It also gives the nation the opportunity to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
