The sun shone and band played and Deputy Mayor of London, Richard Barnes AM, Vice Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nicholas Houghton KCB CBE and Under Secretary of State Kevan Jones all gave speeches thanking serving and past members of the forces.
I had a chance to talk to a number of veterans who were receiving their veteran’s badges and serving personnel from all the services.
Here are a few photos from the day:
