[30 October 2023] Trenitalia-owned train operator c2c is offering free travel to service personnel and veterans travelling to and from services of remembrance next month. The free travel on Saturday 11 November and Sunday 12 November is available to service personnel travelling in uniform or with valid ID, and to veterans who are wearing their medals.
c2c Managing Director Rob Mullen said: “Remembrance Sunday is an important day of reflection across the country and offering free travel to service personnel and veterans is our way of paying our respects to them and to the local railway staff who gave their lives in the two world wars of the last century.”
Customers are also encouraged to look out for our special train (unit 357 018), which commemorates the 88 local railwaymen of the then-London, Tilbury and Southend Railway, who died in the First World War.
The Royal British Legion will also be fundraising at the following c2c stations on London Poppy Day (Thursday 2 November): Fenchurch Street, Barking, Rainham and Upminster.
