Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community, from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.
This year it will be celebrated on Saturday (June 27).
Showing support for the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families.
There will be plenty of events going on in west London, and with a parade marking the RAF Northolt Centenary having already taken place in Uxbridge, as well as a flag raising in Harrow, celebrations are well under way.

Council events taking place in various locations around west London include:
A big celebratory event will be taking place at the Hounslow Civic Centre on Monday (June 29), from 10.45am to 12.30pm.
A spokeswoman from Hounslow Council said: "In the council's annual event there will be a parade down Lampton Road to Hounslow Civic Centre, where there will be a ceremony with readings from the Armed Forces, singing by a group of school children and a ceremonial saluting and flag-waving."
