Swindon’s Bus Company is offering free travel for current and veteran military personnel mark Armed Forces Day.

Past and present members of the army, air force, navy, and any other branch of the armed forces will not have to pay to be passengers on bus journeys around the town on Saturday, June 29.

Swindon’s Bus Company managing director, Andrew Wickham, said: “People in this region are rightfully proud of our country’s military - as is our team here in Swindon.

“As part of this community, we are keen to show our support for servicemen and women.

“The work our troops have done in the past, and still do now, in unimaginably hostile war zones is incredibly humbling.

“And we want to recognise their efforts even in this small way to help them travel to events or to see family and friends on Armed Forces Day.

“On Saturday, June 29, we welcome all those wearing their military uniform, displaying medals, or showing their military ID card on board our buses, and they may travel for free with us all day.”

Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June and is a chance for the country to show support to service personnel, families, veterans, and cadets.
