Organisers of Andover Armed Forces Day are encouraging former service personnel to apply for their Veterans Medal.

Vigo Park is the venue for Armed Forces Day on 25th June where the Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire will award ‘Veteran Badges’ to men and woman who have served their country in our Armed Forces.

Veterans who would like to be awarded their ‘Veterans Badge’ at the event are asked to email mo.sweeney@andoverradio.co.uk well in advance of the event.
