Armed Forces Day at the National Memorial Arboretum
The search is on for a military family to become guests of honour at the Armed Forces Day celebrations at the National Memorial Arboretum. The chosen family will be given VIP treatment during the proceedings on June 24. A spokesperson said: “The lucky family will help take the salute during the parade, be treated to a special lunch, receive tickets to access the Landscapes of Life exhibition and enjoy a private guided tour of the site.” Entrants need to submit a supporting statement or short video clip explaining why they should be chosen. Nominations can be for current or former Armed Forces personnel. To enter, email or submit a video of up to two minutes online before May 31.
