Armed Forces Day in Reading

The Town where I live - Reading - held an Armed Forces Day a few weeks ago, it was a lovely sunny day and they had a Vera Lynn Tribute act (the main reason why I wanted to go!).  The event was mainly to raise money for the Armed Forces as we have a lot of Barracks around Berkshire and to raise awareness of what they are doing. but mainly I think it was to entertain the old folks of Reading so they could remenice about teh war years and when they were young.  It was a really great event and here are some of my pics of the day:

Old people having a thoroughly good time!

See you tomorrow for more Armed Forces related shenanignas, and a gentle reminder that I will be doing a giveaway when I get 50 followers!!  (Or on my 100th post, I have't yet decided, but if you wait for my 100th post and don't follow me then you won't know when it is, so best to follow me anyway! Tee hee)

  1. Hi again!
    I have so enjoyed your blogs about the armed forces day - like you I have so much admiration and thankfulness for the self giving of so many that have ensured that we can live in freedom. I was born in April of 1945.
    Bless you and your family,
