‘Reserves Day’ is being celebrated on Wednesday 21 June
‘Reserves Day’ is being celebrated on Wednesday 21 June

Reserves Day is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the important part that Reservists play in supporting the UK’s defence capability. Reservists have always played - and will continue to play - a key role in our Armed Forces, making a valuable contribution to the nation over and above their day jobs.

Reserves Day will take place on Wednesday 21 June 2017 and celebrates all of those who make up the Reserve Forces. Formerly known as ‘Uniform to Work Day’, Reserves Day provides an opportunity for the whole of the UK to celebrate our Reserve Forces and for Reservists to show pride in their service.

Employers are encouraged to invite their Reservist employees to wear their uniform (where possible) in the workplace. Employers can also show their support by holding events and seminars to promote the work of their employees who are also Reservists.

Another amusing Armed Forces Day activity is to pay tribute to the armed forces by sending in a picture of you saluting them to #SALUTEOURFORCES on Twitter (and Facebook and email). If you have forgotten how to salute, or want to learn from scratch, take a look at this link: recognises and values the essential contribution that our Reservist employees make to our Armed Forces, our nation, our communities and our organisation.
