Today marks the sixth annual Armed Forces Day.
And in the same year we mark the centenary of World War I, there are plenty of events going on across the region to show support for the forces.
In York, early this morning the Hawker Hurricane aircraft, normally housed at the Yorkshire Air Museum, was lifted onto the roof of the café of the Theatre Royal. This month is also the 70th Anniversary of the French Air Force arriving in York.
On top of all this, York will host Stage 2 of the Tour de France Grand Depart, making this memorial especially significant.
