Reserves Day is a chance to recognise and appreciate the integral part that Reservists play in the UK’s Defence capability. In 2019 Reserves Day is on Wednesday 26th June. 

More than 32,000 Reservists are committing their spare time, balancing their day jobs and family life with a military career, to be ready to serve should their country need them.

To ensure that Reservists are understood and appreciated, the Ministry of Defence invites Reservists to wear their uniform to work for one special day each year during Armed Forces Week, and encourages businesses to use this day to highlight the benefits of Reserve service to their workforce.

Reserves Day is on Wednesday of Armed Forces Week which culminates in Armed Forces Day on the following Saturday.
