Armed Forces Day

Southern Vectis is offering free travel for current and veteran military personnel on Saturday 29 June to mark Armed Forces Day.

People here are rightfully proud of our country’s military - as is our team on the Isle of Wight,” said Southern Vectis managing director, Andrew Wickham. “As part of this community, we are keen to show our support for servicemen and women.

The work our troops have done in the past, and still do now, in unimaginably hostile war zones is incredibly humbling. And we want to recognise their efforts even in this small way to help them travel to events or to see family and friends on Armed Forces Day.

“On Saturday 29 June, we welcome all those wearing their military uniform, displaying medals, or showing their military ID card on board our buses, and they may travel for free with us all day.”
