Serving military personnel and veterans attending local Remembrance Sunday events on Sunday 13th November can, once again, travel for free on all South Western Railway (SWR) services.
Serving personnel travelling to the Submariners’ Remembrance Service on Sunday 6th November or the main national commemoration at the Cenotaph in London on Sunday 13th will additionally be able to travel on any London bound SWR service for free on the day before the service, returning from London on the Sunday.
Please note that there will be limited SWR services on Saturday 5th November due to industrial action and customers should check before travelling at https://www.southwesternrailway.com/plan-my-journey
This offer, which is funded by the Department for Transport, is available to anyone who is travelling in uniform or able to show an appropriate form of identification.
This is our way of paying tribute to both current and previous generations of servicemen and women as many of our colleagues, including guards and drivers, are former members of the armed services. Our commitment to supporting Remembrance events demonstrates their significance for us.
Peter Williams, Commercial Director for South Western Railway, said: “South Western Railway is glad that we are once again able to offer free travel to service personnel and veterans to attend Remembrance Sunday events. By making it easier for people to attend these events, we can help to honour the sacrifice made by so many of our servicemen and women. This initiative is particularly important to us as many of our SWR colleagues come from a service background”.
