On Saturday 26 June 2010 Cardiff played host to the second 'Armed Forces Day' national event - and it was certainly a day to remember.

BBC Radio Wales was there as the military parade travelled through the centre of the city from Cardiff Castle and arrived at Cardiff Bay for a Drum Head Service, in the presence of HRH the Prince of Wales, honouring the contributions of the men and women of the Armed Forces in conflicts past and present.

Plus, in the days leading up to the event, we brought you a series of special features, programmes and outside broadcasts.

On this site you can find highlights from our Armed Forces Season coverage, with photos, audio clips, links to programmes and much more.
