It also gives people an opportunity to show their support to the men and women, who make up the Armed Forces communit ranging from currently serving personnel, to service families, veterans and cadets.

South Wales Armed Forces Day Organisation is a non profit organisation and this website is designed, updated and maintained by volunteers and approved third parties. This website aims to promote the forthcoming Armed Forces Day event in South Wales which will take place in Caerphilly.
