YELLOW Buses will be observing a two-minute silence on both Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday as a mark of respect for Britain’s war heroes.
Drivers who are on the road on Thursday November 11 and Sunday November 14 have been asked to stop their buses at the nearest request stop – or safe parking area – at 11am and turn off their engines for the silent tribute.
As in previous years Yellow Buses is also displaying poppies on its 120-strong bus fleet.
Derek Lott, Managing Director, said: “We recognise it is only a small gesture but we are proud to show our support for those who have put their lives on the line for our country.”
Mr Lott was joined by ex-paratrooper Kevin Conroy, Standard Bearer of the Winton and Moordown Royal British Legion, at the company’s Bournemouth headquarters for a short ceremony marking this year’s appeal.
