This year's Armed Forces Day is on Saturday 25 June and all this week the flag is flying at County Hall in Lewes.

Cllr Bob Bowdler, the county council’s Armed Forces Champion was joined by the Lord-Lieutenant for East Sussex, Andrew Blackman to raise the flag on Monday.

He said: “As a nation we owe so much to the men and women of our armed forces. Their dedication to serving this country and the bravery many have shown in conflict, are things we should never take for granted.

“We raise this flag every year as a public declaration of our support and thanks for servicemen and women, service families, veterans and cadets across the country, but especially those from East Sussex.”
