The Six Medals in Middlesbrough celebrated Armed Forces Day in style.

Many of our people did their bit to celebrate Armed Forces Day on 25 June, but only the Six Medals in Middlesbrough had connections with a real wartime hero.

The pub is named after local WWII hero Wing Commander Adrian Warburton, known as “Six Medals” for his two Distinguished Service Orders and four Distinguished Flying Crosses. These achievements make him one of the war’s most decorated pilots.

The pub offered all servicemen and women a free drink on 25 and 26 June in celebration of Armed Forces Day – a day of recognition and support for our Armed Forces community across the country. Customers were also treated to proper military service at the bar and carvery by Sgt Marc Fisher and Sgt Instructor Josh Heslop, both team members who are also reservists.

Marston’s signed the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant earlier this year to show its support for our country’s servicemen and women. You can read more about our commitment to the Forces in the summer edition of The Place – out now!
