Porthleven Celebrates Armed Forces Day

On Saturday, Porthleven held is first (that I know of) Armed Forces Day. This event was held at Porthleven School.

In short, it was a fantastic event with at least 600 – some say near 1000 –  people attending the day. It was good to see so many serving and ex members of the Armed Forces in attendance too. As I said in a previous post, Porthleven has a close connection with the Armed Forces, especially the Royal Navy and its Fleet Air Arm (RNAS Culdrose).

This event would not be the success it was without the help of all those who volunteered during the day. However, special thanks should go to the two people, Sue Davies and Leigh Yates for putting this event together.

For me, it was good to see so many old shipmates and enjoy the day. I was even press-ganged into joining the  Royal Naval Association (RNA)!
