Nottingham was hosting the annual Armed Forces Day. It's a day to recognize Her Majesty's Armed Forces and show support, and every year it's hosted in a different city. We walked along the Victoria Embankment and took in the sights. They had displays of Great Britain's might throughout history, from Romans to Normans to Robin Hood's Merry Men and through the wars to modern times, complete with demonstrations and mock battles.
I didn't take a lot of photos unfortunately, (or fortunately?).

The highlight of the short visit was the flypasts.
A Spitfire showed off its agility. Brits love Spitfires.
