Members of the army, navy, Royal Air Force and veterans and cadets from all three services will take to the streets in a parade to mark Armed Forces Day in Glasgow on Saturday.
Lord Provost Sadie Docherty will welcome them in her capacity as Lord Lieutenant and will then take the salute at the march past.
This will be followed by a Typhoon fly past from No 6 Squadron RAF.
The parade, run by Glasgow City Council, will begin at Holland Street at 2pm and follow a route along West Regent Street, West George Street and around George Square.
The event will host several activities including military vehicles and unarmed combat displays, an assault course and a 30ft climbing wall.
Music will be performed by Britain's Got Talent finalist, Edward Reid, X Factor's Holly Burns and That Swing Sensation featuring Claire Knight and the Kennedy Cup Cakes.
There will also be pipe bands and choirs.
The Lord Provost said: "Every year Glasgow puts on a great show for Armed Forces Day. The event allows us the opportunity to celebrate the honour, pride and courage of those who have served in the military.
"It's always a pleasure to welcome the armed forces and their families to our city and to show our support.
"This year we have a host of attractions and activities for all the family to enjoy. It's going to be a great day. I really hope the people of the Glasgow and beyond come along on Saturday and show their support and appreciation and enjoy the day's entertainment."
