Visitors to Armed Forces Day in Lincoln will have the opportunity to learn more about becoming an RAF Intelligence Reserve by visiting the unit’s promotional stand and speaking to Reservists in person.

Armed Forces Day is taking place on Saturday 28 June in Lincoln, with many activities being planned to take place around the High Street and City Square from 10am to 4pm.

Stalls including the RAF Reserve stand will be found in the City Square throughout the event.

Armed Forces Day is an opportunity for local people to show their support for our Armed Forces community including serving personnel, service families and veterans.

Squadron Leader Jan Burton, will be attending the event with colleagues from the RAF’s Intelligence Reserves, she said: “People visiting our stand will have the chance to speak to Reservists currently serving in the Intelligence area and learn more about how the role can be very rewarding, fascinating and a challenge.

“By attending the event we are hoping to raise public awareness about the RAF Reserve and hope to attract some new Reservists to join us in the future. We will also have a special guest joining us at the event, Group Captain Bunkell QVRM, Inspector of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force who will be happy to answer any questions people may have too.”

A flag raising and standard parade will begin the event in Lincoln’s City Square at 10am. After this time, other entertainment and activities planned at the event include a performance from a RAF Pipes and Drums band; Air Cadet Corps Drummers; Cranwell Military Wives Choir; music from solo artists Katie Mustang and Dennis Hannant and a Battle of Britain Memorial fly over during the afternoon.
