Free c2c Travel To Mark Armed Forces Day

All service personnel and veterans can travel free with National Express train operator c2c this Saturday to mark Armed Forces Day.

Those who are currently in the armed forces only need to produce their military ID card or travel in uniform to benefit, while veterans can travel for free by wearing their medals.

The opportunity will help those travelling to major events like the Armed Forces Day parades in Southend High Street and Basildon Town Square.

c2c Managing Director Julian Drury said: “We want to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. Providing free travel to mark Armed Forces Day is one important part of this, while c2c also signed the Armed Forces Covenant three years ago to help ensure ex-military personnel get the assistance they need after they leave the forces.”
