Earlier today, the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell, Councillor John Beckett was joined by councillors, representatives from the 135 Geographic Squadron and the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment and the Royal British Legion for the borough's 'Fly the Flag' ceremony for Armed Forces Day held at the Clock Tower in the Market Place, Epsom.
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council raised the armed forces day flag in the week preceding national Armed Forces Day and it will fly for the week. In doing so, we joined 10 Downing Street, Government departments and other local authorities in showing our support for the servicemen and women of our armed forces, past and present.
National Armed Forces Day (the last Saturday in June) on 29 June 2019 is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community, from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.

The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment were granted the freedom of the Borough in 2010.
