Parts of the Royal Navy's largest-ever aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, were built in the North East of England.
The vessel, which was formally named by the Queen herself in Fife, is 72,000 tonnes and 932 feet long. She was built in sections around the UK and shipped to Roswyth to be put together.
A&P Group, in Hebburn South Tyneside built her flight deck, which is the size of five football pitches.
Some of the steel used to make up the vessel was also built at plants in Hartlepool and Skinningrove, on Teesside.
ITV Tyne Tees viewers told us on Facebook how they marked Armed Forces Day.
Sharon McKenna said: "Lovely flypast in Redcar. Young and old have done a brilliant job."
Emma Neale recommended the celebrations at Seaburn old rec, which continue tomorrow.
And South Shields marked the day a week early.
Laura Barrie sent us this picture of the celebrations last weekend and said: "My daughter marched with her detachment in Bents Park. The mayor stopped and congratulated her on her involvement in the Army Cadets. Could not be prouder."
