East Yorkshire’s area director Ben Gilligan said: “Bus driving is a popular career choice for those leaving the armed forces, so many of our team have served in the military, and know what sacrifices our soldiers, sailors and aviators have to make.

“Last year many remembrance parades couldn’t happen, so this year we’d like to make sure all veterans who want to can attend to pay their respects to those we lost.”
