SCOTTISH Borders Council (SBC) is flying the flag of Armed Forces Day this week to honour the work of our Armed Forces and as a mark of homage to those who have given their lives in the service of their country.
The Government has set the Saturday closest to 30 June as Armed Forces Day and has asked all councils to fly the flag in recognition of the role played by servicemen and women past and present.
SBC Convenor, Graham Garvie, said: "Scottish Borders Council has been proud to play its part in recognising our servicemen and women in previous years and is proud to fly the flag again this year."
Councillor John Greenwell was appointed as the Armed Forces Veterans' Champion at the full Council meeting held in Peebles on Thursday 21 June.
