Armed Forces Week saw foodies and financiers toast the launch of the 2015 Square Mile Salute at exclusive members-only club Annabel’s.

Directors, managers and execs dined on caviar with Masterchef judge Monica Galetti, launching the countdown to their Square Mile Salute charity banquet.

The banquet, taking place in September, will raise funds for five military charities.

City guests from Jefferies to Goldman Sachs mingled with veterans from three generations of conflict, from the Second World War to Afghanistan.

JP Morgan managing director Tim Hailes said: “The City has a great history of philanthropy and a strong tradition of support for the Armed Forces Community.”

Galetti added: “Come and join us at what I know will be the best Square Mile Salute yet!” Yes Ma’am!
