Reading the TFL website, one would believe that the free Taxis supplied for veterans and their families was their doing. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
A couple of years ago, TfL decided to close many central London Underground stations, virtually stranding veterans (many of whom are disabled) wishing to attend the rememberance services. TfL never even thought to offer a replacement bus service.
London Cabby, Mike Hughes took up the baton and in league with the Royal British Legion and members of the United Cabbies Group, sent out a plea to the wider Taxi community.
Adverts appeared in the United Cabbies News and on certain Taxi websites which touched the hearts of London's finest.
The initial event was so well attended, it was decided the service would be extended and had now become a regular service.
Many drivers work overnight and stay out just to be part of Remembrance Day and help provide this free Taxi service.
From Royal Dragoons guards and their families a big thank you to you all.
The veterans staying at Royal Scott hotel have shown their appreciation by presenting event marshal Andrzej Simco with their regiment emblem Royal Dragoons Guards, which he accepted on behalf of all the drivers.
Also on display were a number of vintage Taxis, kept in immaculate working order.
