Today's defence news includes coverage the Sun's military awards.
The Sun Military Awards 2018
The Sun Military awards will take place this evening. In a special edition, The Sun reported on the shortlisted nominees and featured short interviews with each.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:
It was a great honour to attend The Sun Military Awards and congratulate so many of the winners and nominees in person. The incredible stories told tonight show how our armed forces protect British people and our interests at home and abroad.
Whether by rescuing civilians from conflict, helping Salisbury recover from a reckless chemical attack or standing up to the appalling use of chemical weapons in Syria, tonight’s nominees have shown the brilliance and bravery of our armed forces. I’m grateful to The Sun for helping the whole country congratulate these remarkable serving personnel and those who support them in their vital work.
