Summary
A day to to highlight and recognise the valuable contribution Reservists make to our Armed Forces.

This awareness day takes place on the Wednesday before last Saturday in June.

Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve as part of the military.

The Reserve Forces make up approximately one-sixth of British Armed Forces personnel and as such are integral to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas, particularly providing capability in specialist areas such as medical and cyber.
