Leeds’s largest bus operator is offering free travel to members of the armed forces to mark Remembrance Sunday.

First West Yorkshire is running the scheme to allow service personnel, veterans and cadets to travel to commemoration events between 10am and 12pm this Sunday.

Anyone in uniform or who can show a valid armed forces identification card, including the MOD Veteran’s Badge, is entitled to free journeys.

Paul Matthews, managing director of First West Yorkshire, said:

“Remembrance Day is an incredibly important occasion for many people to show their support, or remember family members, friends and others who have been lost in military service. There will be many events and services taking place locally where people, communities and organisations around the area can visit to show their respect. As a supporter of our communities, we want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend local events on this important day.”
