series of events leading up to a service of celebration to mark
Armed Forces Day on Saturday, 29 June 2013.
From Monday, 24 June 2013, the Armed Forces Flag will fly on the

those who make up our armed services around the world.
After raising the flag, Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar will
launch the city’s first Armed Forces Day Book of Support and
Remembrance. This will remain in the Town Hall foyer for members
of the public to record their support, thoughts and remembrance
for the armed forces, past and present.
Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar said:- “I
am delighted and honoured to be leading the city in celebrating
the brave and heroic work of our armed forces across the world.
This book is not only somewhere people can remember veterans no
longer with us but also to leave messages of support for our
current serving officers caught up in conflict. I would
encourage as many people as possible to come along to the Town
Hall this week and take the opportunity to write their own
personal thoughts and encouragements in the book.”
Following on from this, Veterans, present serving Military,
Merchant Navy and Cadets will join the Lord Mayor and other
civic guests at the Town Hall at a special civic reception on
Tuesday, 25 June 2013, to officially launch Armed Forces Day in
All these events will be leading up to a service of Celebration
at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral on Saturday, 29 June 2013. The
service, which begins at 11am, will be led by the Lord Mayor.
Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar said:-
“Liverpool has always had extremely strong links with all
military organisations and the Merchant Navy and I hope we will
continue to recognise their dedication for many years to come.
As in previous years, Armed Forces day is time for the city to
honour all military personnel, past and present for their
commitment and bravery in helping to make the world a safer
place to live. I would encourage as many people as possible to
come out in force to show their support and thanks by attending
the service and march.”
As in previous years the services will be followed by the march
by Veterans, present service Military and Cadets from Liverpool
Cathedral along Hope Street.
