Speaking after the event, Mr Ramsay said: “I was delighted to witness the raising of the commemorative Armed Forces Day flag and to take part in this tribute to all those who serve or have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
“They risk their lives on a daily basis to make this country more secure and we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude.”
