The city of Plymouth officially accepted the honour of hosting the Armed Forces Day 2012 national celebrations yesterday when the official flag was delivered to the city.

Councillor Peter Brookshaw, Lord Mayor of Plymouth, accepted the flag on behalf of the city yesterday, with the promise of a first class programme of events to honour our forces past and present.

Plymouth will host the national celebrations on Saturday, 30 June 2012. The event programme will include the opportunity to visit HMS Argyll at anchor in the Sound, a moving Drumhead Service on Plymouth Hoe, a parade of Armed Forces past and present, an air show including a Typhoon and historical flights, and an impressive steam past of British naval vessels in Plymouth Sound, and will culminate in a display by the spectacular Red Arrows.

There will also be a packed programme of music and entertainment, including performances from the Military Wives Choir, and a cadet band competition.
