To mark Armed Forces Day tomorrow (Saturday), bus operator First Bus is offering free travel across its West of England operations to all Armed Forces personnel.

From tomorrow until June 30, anyone wearing uniforms of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army, Royal Airforce or any associated cadet force or is able to show valid identification will ride on First buses free of charge.

Retired Armed Forces personnel and veterans are also included in the offer.

James Freeman, managing director of First Weston, said: “Armed Forces Day is all about thanking serving members of the forces for all their outstanding work for this country.

“With events taking place between 23 and 30 June such as the Weston Armed Forces Weekend to mark the occasion, offering them free passage is our way of showing our gratitude.”
