I think readers know I’m keen to support and promote armed forces charities, events and all things Remembrance here on the blog, and so I thought I’d flag up this pair of events being put on by the Royal British Legion’s Pelsall Branch to commemorate Armed Forces Day.
Karen Clifft wrote to me and said:
I thought I’d let you know about our events for Armed forces week in Pelsall.
Tomorrow, Saturday 20th June 2015, it’s the Armed Forces Week 2015 – Official Launch.
Branch officials will be by the flagpole from 10.30am dressed in 40s costumes to advertise our big Armed Forces event the following week.
Come along and get your legion goodies and information on the event.
Flag will be raised by Mr President, Garry Perry and Branch Events Chairman, David Wood at 11am.
The event next on Saturday 27th June 2015 takes place on Pelsall Common and looks set to be great:
