TRIBUTES were paid to Britain's armed forces at a special ceremony at Bromsgrove District Council House, Burcot Lane, this morning (Monday).
Mike Millward, from the Birmingham branch of the Royal Engineers Association, and Dale Carter, the branch chairman of Lickey End Royal British Legion, led a short parade, before a flag was raised by civic head, Coun Janice Boswell.
More than 50 people turned out for the commemoration, which was followed by tea, coffee and biscuits in the council members' room.
Coun Boswell said it was a fantastic way for people to show their respect for the armed forces.
"We owe them so much for the support they give to us.
"Days like this also let them know we are thinking of them and what they do on a daily basis.
"I am proud and honoured to have done this today in Bromsgrove," she added.
Fly a flag for our Armed Forces events have been held across the UK, ahead of Saturday's Armed Forces Day.
