YELLOW Buses will be observing a two-minute silence on both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day as a mark of respect for Britain’s war heroes.
Drivers who are on the road on Sunday 10th November and Monday 11th have been asked to stop their buses at the nearest request stop – or safe parking area – at 11am for the silent tribute.
Some of the drivers are veterans themselves and will be wearing their medals.
As in previous years the 150 vehicles in the Yellow Buses’ fleet will be displaying poppies.
Andrew Smith, Finance Director of Yellow Buses, 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.”
Andrew 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.
Kevin said: “We are very grateful to Yellow Buses who have been supporting us in this way for many years.”
