This weekend's Armed Forces Day brings with it a variety of special offers and freebies for those who serve in Britain's military.
As a gesture of thanks, businesses are making their goods and services available for free to the men and women who give up so much in service to our nation.
Here, BFBS selects the best free opportunities for you to take advantage of this weekend for Armed Forces Day 2021.
Free Food At Toby Carvery
To celebrate Armed Forces Day, all military personnel will be able to claim a free carvery, breakfast, or main meal from Toby Cavery restaurants.

To claim a meal, Armed Forces personnel should download a voucher through the Toby Carvery app and show it alongside their military ID when ordering.
The special offer is open to all military personnel, ranging from serving troops and reserves to veterans and cadets.
The offer is available on Saturday, June 26, at more than 150 Toby Carvery sites across the UK.
Free Entry To Drayton Manor Theme Park
One of the UK's most popular theme parks is opening its gates for free to those serving in the Armed Forces this coming Saturday – Armed Forces Day 2021.
Alongside those currently serving, the free entry opportunity is extended to veterans, too.

Personnel and veterans must take a military ID card, a Rewards For Forces Card or Defence Privilege Card to gain free entry.
Get Active At The Gym Or Pool With Everyone Active Leisure Centres
Leisure operator Everyone Active is offering members of the Armed Forces complimentary access to more than 200 leisure facilities nationwide on Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27. The goodwill gesture has been made to mark Armed Forces Day.

Save On A New Home
Members of the Armed Forces with links to Derbyshire might want to take advantage of an Armed Forces Day saving on the cost of a new home.
The scheme has been introduced by housebuilder Tilia Homes, an initiative they hope will help past and present military members to buy a new home.
The offer is £500 off every £25,000 spent on a property, with a cap of 3% on the home's total cost.
