Train operator c2c has announced it will allow veterans and current service personnel to travel for free on its services this Sunday to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice to end the First World War.

Those travelling to the national service of remembrance at the Cenotaph can also have a free cup of tea and slice of cake at Fenchurch Street plus all trains running via Laindon and via Ockendon will be formed of 8-carriages to provide more seats for those travelling to and from London.

To travel for free on Sunday, service personnel simply need to show their military ID and veterans display their medals.

“We offer free travel to veterans and service personnel each year as part of our tribute on Remembrance Sunday,” said c2c Managing Director Julian Drury. “To mark this year’s centenary we also unveiled our own local memorial to provide a permanent reminder of the bravery of our fallen 88 railway colleagues.”

A special train was unveiled last week in honour of those 88 railwaymen of the then-London, Tilbury and Southend Railway who died during the First World War.

The train also carries commemorative poppy designs by 7-year-old Rosalia Folley, who won a competition to design the train.

c2c also says it raised over £1,500 for the Royal British Legion this month by selling special poppy pin badges to staff.
