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 Friday November 11 and Sunday November 13 have been asked to stop their buses at the nearest request stop – or safe parking area – at 11am for the silent tribute.

As in previous years Yellow Buses is also displaying poppies on its 132-strong bus fleet.

Jenni Wilkinson, Head of Marketing, said: “We are proud to show our support for these annual acts of remembrance in recognition of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.”

Jenni was joined by ex-paratrooper Kevin Conroy, Standard Bearer of the Winton and Moordown Royal British Legion, and his Deputy, Gordon Longmore, formerly with the Royal Navy, at the company’s Bournemouth headquarters for a short ceremony marking this year’s Poppy appeal.
