Wales Office Minister Alun Cairns will today (Saturday June 27) attend the South Wales Armed Forces Day being held at Cardiff Castle. Large crowds are expected at the city centre venue for a packed programme which includes a parade, the traditional Drumhead service, military displays at Coopers Field and live music.

Alun Cairns said:


I am proud to join this national opportunity to thank our servicemen and women.

Only this month in Cardiff, the Queen honoured the Royal Welsh with new regimental colours. And 2015 has been a symbolic year in other ways, with the centenary of the Welsh Guards and the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo in which Welsh Cavalry featured prominently.

From a distinguished military past to the modern day contribution of the Welsh regular units and reservists who have have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Armed Forces Day is our national opportunity to commemorate the bravery of our servicemen and women.

Secretary of State for Wales Stephen Crabb attended the North Wales Armed Forces Day which was held at Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay, on 20 June.

The Wales Office has further shown its support by flying the Armed Forces Day flag above Gwydyr House, the department’s headquarters in London.
