Marking Remembrance Sunday
7 months ago
Southern Vectis is again marking Remembrance this November by displaying poppies on our buses over the coming weeks.
We are also offering free travel on all buses for members and veterans of the nation’s armed forces on Remembrance Sunday.
As a local community and as a country, we are rightfully proud of our military. And so we are keen to show our support for servicemen and women.
We will be helping to raise funds during November with our Travel Shops displaying poppy collection tins. The work our troops did - and still do now - in unimaginably hostile war zones is incredibly humbling. And we hope, by proudly displaying our poppies and raising awareness for the Royal British Legion, we’re backing our words with actions.
On Sunday 10 November, 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.
We will be asking our drivers to pull over (where/if it is safe to do so) at 11am on Monday 11 November as a mark of respect to observe the two minutes’ silence.
