Britain's servicemen and women were honoured in a special flag raising ceremony in Huddersfield on Monday, 20th June 2016.

The Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Jim Dodds, addressed serving members of the Armed Forces, Huddersfield Veterans and members of the public at a short service on the Piazza after a specially commissioned flag in celebration of Armed Forces Day was raised above the Town Hall.

The flag raising ceremony was mirrored by local authorities across the country to mark Armed Forces Day, which falls on Saturday, June 25. The flag will fly for a week as a reminder of events and celebrations taking place around the UK.
