How to salute

For everyone planning their salute for our forces, we have put together a quick how-to. Follow these short and simple steps, and you will have mastered the real armed forces salute.

1. Stand upright.

2. Bend your right arm, and put your right hand to your forehead.

3. Salute with an open palm.

4. Salute with the palm facing forward.

Please remember that whilst you are saluting, you are doing this in respect of our Armed Forces.

Armed Forces Day have made some short videos to show how the real armed forces salute! Check them out here.

We will be expecting to see perfectly practiced salutes on your visit to Diggerland this weekend!
