London Taxi Drivers To Offer Free Service a To Veterans On Remembrance Sunday.


United Cabbies Group is honoured to announce that they will be organising a free taxi service for veterans on Remembrance Sunday, 10th November 2013.


This will be the fourth year this service has been offered and in conjunction with the Royal British Legion the service has become an important feature for veterans travelling to ceremonies in Central London

 

Taxis will be available from 8am from most major rail stations and British Legion locations.

 

London Taxi Drivers will assemble on Westminster Bridge to observe the period of silence. There will then be a free shuttle service to ferry veterans to locations in London.

 

Taxi drivers are giving their time without any payment whatsoever and Transport for London has no involvement in this service.

 

This year there will be opportunity to see and ride in old London Taxis from the early part of the 20th Century. 


One of the taxis used in Downton Abbey will also be on Westminster Bridge after the Ceremonies.

Remember ALL are welcome, this probably won't be happening for much longer as many have joined their fallen comrades.

It's the least we can do, even if you don't join the official ferry ranks, if you get a veteran and their family in your cab during the day, think about saying 'have this one on the cab trade'.

'Bless them all, the long and the short and the tall'.
