Two of our region's towns are celebrating the role our armed forces play a week ahead of national celebrations.
Rotherham is having various stalls and entertainment as well as a parade through the town centre by serving troops, reservists, veterans and cadets. The event comes after Rotherham Borough Council signed the Armed Forces Covenant earlier this year, which means the authority pledges to help service people adapt into civilian life when leaving the armed forces.
More than 15,000 people are also expected in Scarborough as displays, parades and games take place on the seafront.
Events will include an aeronautical display by The Blades team, a joint sea exercise between HMS Explorer, Scarborough Lifeboat and a RAF Sea King helicopter and parade along the seafront.
