Operators around the country paid tribute to the fallen for Armistice Day on 11 November and Remembrance Day on 14 November, as Richard Sharman reports

Arriva UK Bus
Arriva Merseyside added Royal British Legion names and vinyl poppies to one of its Wrightbus Gemini 2s.













Brighton & Hove and Metrobus
Brighton & Hove and Metrobus offered free travel to veterans and serving members of the armed forces on Remembrance Sunday. Anyone wearing their military service medals or carrying a military ID card could travel free all day on the company’s network. Managing Director Martin Harris said he wanted to make travelling to Remembrance Day services, parades and wreath laying as convenient as possible: “Remembrance Sunday is a time for communities to come together and acknowledge the debt the nation owes the people who serve in our armed forces, while looking toward the future with hope and belief in our democratic values. It is also important to remember that the day honours all those who have been part of all conflicts since the two world wars.”
