LANDMARC RAISES THE FLAG ACROSS THE DEFENCE TRAINING ESTATE TO MARK THE START OF ARMED FORCES WEEK

To celebrate Armed Forces Week 2024, Landmarc and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) are raising the Armed Forces Day flag across the Defence Training Estate, in order to show their support and thanks to service personnel.

Landmarc and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) raise the Armed Forces Day flag across the Defence Training Estate in order to show their support and thanks to service personnel.

The raising of the flag takes place each year at Defence Training Estate (DTE) sites across the UK and is witnessed by both Armed Forces personnel and civilians. This year, Landmarc and DIO want to extend an extra-special thank you to full-time serving and reservist troops, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, veterans and their families, by proudly flying the official Armed Forces Day flag at military training estates across the UK.

Landmarc works in partnership with DIO to provide the support services that enable the Armed Forces to live, work and train on the UK Defence Training Estate.

Earlier this year, Landmarc reaffirmed its commitment to Armed Forces communities by re-signing the Armed Forces Covenant and was rewarded with a revalidation of its Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award.

Mark Neill, Managing Director at Landmarc, said, “Having worked so closely with the Armed Forces for more than two decades, over 25 per cent of our team now come from a military background. We therefore work hard to make Landmarc a good employer for transitioning service personnel, veterans and their families, pledging to treat them fairly and with respect in recognition of the loyalty and service that they have given to our country.

“As a veteran myself, I know first-hand how important Armed Forces Week is for improving morale across our military communities and we are proud to show our support for our troops during this special week.”

Brigadier Hatcher, DIO’s Head of Overseas and Training Region added: “Armed Forces Week is a chance to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. Together with our colleagues at Landmarc we are proud to come together and raise the flag at sites across the country in support of our Armed Forces.”
