Northern offers free travel for armed forces for Remembrance Day

Northern is offering complimentary travel this weekend – and on Monday 11 November – across the entire network for service personnel.

Those wearing an armed forces uniform or carrying a military ID card, as well as cadets in uniform and veterans who display valid identification (such as the MOD issued Veteran's Badge) will be entitled to free travel on all Northern services.

The hundreds of licensed poppy sellers, who have been volunteering in the lead up to this weekend, will also be able to take advantage of the offer.

A spokesperson for Northern said: "There are many Remembrance Day events taking place across our network, a number of which we are supporting.

“We want to acknowledge the contribution and sacrifices the armed forces have made by making it as easy as possible for people to attend events on this important weekend.”
