Service personnel of the past, present and future launch Armed Forces Day in front of HMS Gannet in the Historic Dockyard at Chatham

National Armed Forces Day to honour the UK's Service personnel, past, present and future, was launched by Veterans Minister Kevan Jones in Chatham, Kent, Thursday 22 January 2009.

National Armed Forces Day will be held on 27 June 2009 and the Historic Dockyard Chatham has been selected to host the main event which will be complemented by hundreds of smaller events in towns and cities across the UK.

From this year on, Armed Forces Day will be held annually on 27 June, providing the nation with a dedicated day when people can come together to show their appreciation and support of the Armed Forces.
