Armed Forces Day

June 24th: The best turnout yet today for the annual Armed Forces Day flag raising at Oakham Castle, organised by Rutland Council with support from many sources including  the Desert Rats, the Royal Logistics Corps, Catmose College and several primary schools including English Martyrs, Empingham and Great Casterton. Also the 1st Barleythorpe Brownies and many veterans.

Thanks to all who attended. It was a great opportunity for Rutland to recognise the vital contribution the military has made and continues to make.
