A call has gone out to Moray’s military veterans to take part in the area’s Armed Forces Day in Forres this month.
The event, which promises to be the biggest and best yet, will host dozens of military attractions and events.
An estimated 170 serving personnel, veterans and cadets will parade through the town behind two pipe bands on Saturday, June 21, before saluting the Lord Lieutenants of Moray and Banffshire, and senior military commanders.
Dozens of military displays and activities will then be opened to the public in Grant Park.
A Sea King helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth will land in the park in the afternoon and people will get the chance to go onboard the aircraft.
There will be a salute and flypast beside the Sunken Garden near Grant Park.
A variety of stalls and military displays will be set up, including vehicles, weaponry and have-a-go exhibitions of Army equipment such as diggers and metal detectors.
Moray Council is hosting the event, which is being staged a week before the national Armed Forces Day.
Moray Council convener Councillor Stewart Cree said people in the area always responded well when given an opportunity to show their support for the armed forces.
“It’s always heartwarming to see the number of people turning out to appreciate the men and women of our armed forces,” he said.
“In particular, this is a great opportunity to pay tribute to those veterans in our midst and I would urge all veterans from across Moray to take part in the parade.
“I have already written to all the area’s ex-servicemen’s clubs inviting their members, but everyone will be welcome.”
