Raise a flag for the armed forces
We gladly accepted the invitation from the Mayor of Darlington again to attend the Raise a Flag ceremony in Darlington town centre. It was a hot day and representatives from the armed forces stood in full uniform to remember those who are serving or have been injured or died in service for their country. They stood in full attention for nearly an hour in the hot sun without wavering; the Ambassadors were very impressed by their strength and commitment. We were lucky to witness a soldier receiving a medal for his service to WWII from France.
