People across Wales are celebrating Armed Forces Day, a day to show support to the men and women who serve in the armed forces.

At Cardiff Castle, Corporal Fife of the 3rd Battallion of The Royal Welsh raised a flag to mark the occasion.

Although closed, The Firing Line Museum, which focuses on military history and is based in the castle, also celebrated the 10th anniversary of its opening.

First Minister Mark Drakeford also thanked those serving in the armed forces in a video on social media.

''This year has seen us face unprecedented challenges due to coronavirus.'' he said.

''The role of the armed forces in tackling the pandemic has been hugely significant.

''By supporting the NHS and our most vulnerable people you have again been there when called upon.''
