South Western Railway has announced that they will be honouring the armed forces community by offering free travel for serving troops, veterans and cadets on Remembrance Day.

Free travel will be available for collectors on London Poppy Day.

Armed forces personnel can travel on any SWR service for free, allowing travel to local Remembrance Day events, including the Cenotaph in London for the main national commemoration.

Personnel need to be in uniform or able to show an identification card with their branch of the military stated.

The offer is also open to members of the cadet forces in uniform and veterans who display valid identification.

What did the officials say?

Peter Williams, Commercial Director for South Western Railway, said:

“We wanted to honour the armed forces community with this offer of free travel as many of our colleagues come from a service background.

“We are grateful for the sacrifice that so many men and women have given over the years so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.”
