WATCH: A special St David’s Day message for the men and women serving in our armed forces and civil service

Wales’s highest ranking RAF officer, Air Officer Wales, Air Commodore Dai Williams, has recorded a special St David’s Day message here in Wales’s newest city.

Air Cdre Williams, who is the Ministry of Defence Welsh Language Champion, recorded the message from the Council Chamber at Wrexham’s Guildhall.

He was accompanied by the Mayor of Wrexham Councillor Brian Cameron, Wrexham Council’s Armed Forces Champion Councillor Beverley Parry-Jones, and the council’s Chief Executive Ian Bancroft.

He reflects on the strong links that Wrexham has with the armed forces, and pays tribute to the vital role that men and women in Defence from across Wales proudly carry out as part of the UK armed forces and civil service.

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! / Happy St David’s Day!
