Appreciation to the servicemen and women of past and present was shown today across the UK and in Watford, the armed forces flag flew proudly outside the town hall.

Armed Forces Day, is an annual national campaign that gives everyone the opportunity to show their support for the men and women of the armed forces, including currently serving troops, service families, reservists, veterans and cadets.

Chairman of Watford Borough Council, Cllr Asif Khan, said: "I want to say on behalf of Watford as a town and its people, to all of our veterans, service personnel, reserves and their families, whether you are at home or overseas, thank you for all that you do. There is pride in our town for those who are serving in our armed forces and respect for our veterans."

Similar events were held in Hertsmere and Three Rivers.
