Why is Armed Forces Day celebrated and do the civilian public think Britain’s military should be thanked for their service in a national show of support?
Members of the public who live in areas where there is a strong military presence, such as garrison towns, near bases or naval ports might be familiar with the annual event which is a chance for people to show their support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community – from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
But how much do the public outside of those areas with a strong military connection know about Armed Forces Day and do they support the idea of thanking our military for serving their country?
