Armed Forces Day Display at Stoke Park, Guildford a resounding & popular success

We couldn’t see everything at Armed Forces Day at Guildford’s Stoke Park. With two stages – the Fringe Stage and the Main Arena, military display areas for the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, the Army, and so much more.

Now look, I’m a boy. I like chatting to soldiers and looking at military vehicles, as a result of which we didn’t see many of the events in the arena or on the stages. We did see the RAF Falcons parachute display team, and the Red Devils of the Parachute Regiment, and the fly past of a Spitfire and a Hurricane – very impressive all.

I reckon there must’ve been 50,000 people, or perhaps more at the event, all of whom seemed to be having a great day in the sun. I didn’t take that many photos, as was too keen on chats with the servicemen. Get Surrey have a good selection of images of the day. Here’s my photo montage of the day, plus a short video of visitors having fun on a Royal Engineers seven-person bicycle. [Silly me, the video wrongly says it’s a six-person bike].
