Wiltshire Armed Forces & Veterans Celebrations


Support the Forces family

SSAFA have recorded a new version of the World War One song Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag to show their support for the whole Forces family.

During World War One, Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag was sung by men marching off to war. SSAFA was there to look after the families on the Home Front. SSAFA are still here for our Forces family today.

The aim of the weekend is not to celebrate the conflicts, but to celebrate, remember, each and every individual, both veterans and serving members of our armed forces.

The Park will play host again to displays from serving retired and veteran military personnel, marching bands, entertainment, dog displays, flypasts, re-enactors (from Anglo Zulu War, WW2 up to more recent conflicts), vehicles, trade stalls, fair rides, NAAFI (Sample catering of the 40’s)
