20-25 June 2016

The Armed Forces Day flag was raised in Surrey boroughs on Monday 20th June – in driving rain – at the start of the week preceding Armed Forces Day on 25th June. The Surrey Lieutenancy was represented in Surrey Heath by Peter Lee DL (left), while Brigadier Paul Evans DL joined members of Guildford Borough Council and representatives of the military and civilian community at Guildford Castle (centre). To mark Armed Forces Day itself, the Historic and Vintage Military Vehicle Rally and Show was held at Loseley Park on Sunday 26 June, with a range of military vehicles on display alongside World War re-enactors (right).

American Memorial Day was held at the Brookwood American Cemetery and Memorial on Sunday 29th May. VADM James G Foggo III, Commander of the US 6th Fleet attended, together with the Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, British Army troops from the 1st Army Training regiment at Pirbright and the US Air Forces Europe Band Five Star Brass. In his memorial address, Vice Admiral Foggo said:

“Brookwood is just one of 20 American military cemeteries in Europe, and our veterans are buried in countless cemeteries within the United States. The four-and- a-half acres of Brookwood American Cemetery is especially poignant because it is surrounded by Brookwood Military Cemetery, where service members from the United Kingdom, Belgium, Poland, Czechoslovakia and France are also buried…

selfless men and women who were all fighting for the same cause.”

They received their trophies and certificates from HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, Mr Michael More-Molyneux, at a special awards ceremony at Guildford’s Guildford Harbour Hotel. Now in its fourth year and organised by Surrey Youth Focus in partnership with Haslemere Travel, Surrey Young Superstars aims to create a positive image of young people across the county. It recognises and rewards their achievements and showcases the incredible contributions they make to their communities.

HRH the Duchess of Gloucester shows great support for the Royal Alexandra and Albert School at Reigate. In her role as President, she joined pupils, staff, governors and past pupils for the annual Founders’ Day service on 6th May; it was the last for Paul D Spencer Ellis, who retires this summer after 15 years as Headmaster, and a celebration of the ongoing success of the school under his leadership. During the service, the Duchess heard how the school continues to support children whose home circumstances make boarding education desirable. She presented prizes to this year’s winners and joined staff and pupils for a brief reception before greeting junior pupils who were waiting excitedly to meet her. She even ‘high-fived’ one of the juniors during her walkabout.
