Stagecoach West Scotland is supporting military personnel past and present this Remembrance Sunday (11 November 2018).
In addition a contribution has been made to the Royal British Legion, enabling all drivers who choose to wear a poppy to do so.
On Remembrance Sunday Stagecoach West Scotland will also be offering free travel to those Armed Forces personnel carrying a military ID card and veterans wearing a veteran’s badge.
Remembrance Sunday is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
With Remembrance services planned at memorials in various towns across West Scotland it is hoped that personnel wishing to pay their respects will take up the offer to travel across West Scotland to the service of their choice.
Sam Greer, Stagecoach West Scotland Managing Director said; “Once again, we are proud to be supporting Remembrance Sunday in this way. This year, 100 years after World War I ended, we are supporting our armed forces to say Thank you to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world."
"Through our support we hope we can send a clear message to our Armed Forces communities in West Scotland that we appreciate and recognise the commitment they have made to our country over the years.”
Stagecoach Group signed the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Corporate Covenant in support of the Armed Forces Community. As a signatory of the Covenant, the company recognises the value serving personnel; regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to both the country and businesses across the country.
