Norwich City supporters show support for Armed Forces at Carrow Road

Norwich City supporters had the chance to show their appreciation to local members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces at Carrow Road this weekend.

The club held its annual Armed Forces Day, as the Canaries took on Bolton Wanderers in their latest Premier League clash, winning 2-0.

Both current and former service personnel attended the match, taking to the pitch before kick-off, including representatives of The Light Dragoons from Swanton Morley, an armoured reconnaissance regiment which is preparing to deploy to Afghanistan for six months for the fourth time in the spring.

They were joined by members of the First Battalion from The Royal Anglian Regiment, also due to go out to Afghanistan next month.

Personnel from RAF Marham and members of the Norfolk Branch of the RAF Regiment Association, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary, also enjoyed the match.

While members of Forces2Canaries, a group comprised of fans with military connections and City-supporting personnel, also attended through the organisation Tickets for Troops.
