Images from the UK Armed Forces community to reflect family life today

Is your family part of the UK Armed Forces community? We would love to hear from you!

Welcome to Real Stories, an online gallery of images submitted by military-connected families reflecting family life today. We hope this virtual art gallery will be educational and informative, and will help raise awareness and understanding of what life is like for the Armed Forces community. Real Stories provides the opportunity to view your experiences through your own lens, and presented in a way of your choosing.

We are inviting members of the UK Armed Forces community (anybody who is related or in a partnership with somebody who is serving or has served in the Armed Forces) to submit an image to show what it is like for military-connected families today.

We welcome contributions from serving and ex-serving families. Please note: contributors must be 18 years or over. However, adults can submit entries on behalf of children under the age of 18 years.

Submissions for 2021 are now CLOSED
