Mike Backs our Troops


Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has praised the British Armed Forces for their heroic and courageous sacrifices on the eve of Armed Forces Day.

Armed Forces Day 2013 falls on Saturday 29th June and is an opportunity to do two things. First, it raises public awareness of the contribution made to Britain by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Second, it gives the nation an opportunity to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.

Commenting, Mike said: “It is difficult to put into words just how grateful I am to all of our Armed Forces, who routinely put their lives at risk to ensure our continuing peace and freedom. I am sure I speak for all of the residents of Hove and Portslade when I say thank you for your amazing dedication. It is sometimes easy to forget, as we go about in our day-to-day lives, that the brave men and women of the Armed Forces are on watch, 24 hours a day, keeping us safe.”
