Armed Forces Day (formerly was Veterans’ Day) commemorates the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces and it takes place annually on the last Saturday of June. This year Armed Forces Day took place on Saturday the 27th June. This year our photography tutor Ion Paciu had the honour to document the event at the Union Jack Club in central London, Waterloo.

Armed Forces Day

Over 100 military forces part of the Royal Air Force (RAF), Royal Navy and British Army took part in the event.

Out tutor Ion Paciu, as always, was present and he captured the most important moments of the event with his camera. We thought we should share some of the military portraits with you.
