Armed Forces Day

27 Jun 2015

Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to show support for and raise awareness of our Armed Forces - veterans, reservists and cadets. On 27th June SMHS participated in Seahaven Armed Forces Day at the Martello Fields, Seaford.

Opening with a parade, veterans marched shoulder to shoulder with cadets from all three services, young and old, proud to serve or have served. After a short address, the parade ground was transformed into a display arena, Elvis in Army uniform belted out a few hits, followed by displays from the emergency services and then community groups, bands and singers, even a tug-o-war!

Encircled by stalls and military vehicles this event draws together the community and SMHS was delighted to play a part, displaying photos of our field activities and hearing locals discuss their military service or that of their relatives along with imparting knowledge of the military activity in the local area, predominantly in the two World Wars.

Thanks are due to Stewart, Pete H, Vanessa, Rob H, Gary and Jill who all worked really hard on a very hot day to mark this important event.
