Portsmouth will mark Armed Forces Day with a special presentation of Arctic Star medals for 25 Arctic Convoy veterans.
The ceremony has just begun in the Guildhall Square.
It is fitting on a day where we remember the vital role our armed forces make to our security and wellbeing, we present the Arctic Star medal to veterans of the Arctic Convoy who have waited so long for this recognition.
Mainly of the veterans received their medals in the post from the government, however we felt they deserved a special presentation.
Serving personnel and veterans will all be gathering for this special ceremony and parade.
