Remembering war heroes
Flag raised for armed forces day
THE union flag was flown in Royston this week to commemorate the sacrifices made by servicemen and women.
Representatives from the Royston branch of the Royal British Legion, Royston Town Council, and North Herts District Council, took part in a ceremony to mark Armed Forces Day.
A flag was raised at the Grossalmerode Gardens outside the town hall.
Formerly known as Veterans Day, the title ‘Armed Forces Day’ has been chosen to reflect the wider armed forces family of serving personnel veterans and the cadet forces.
