A BUS company said it's 'backing its words with actions' by displaying poppies on its vehicles to support the military.

Salisbury Reds is showing its support for the Royal British Legion by sticking poppies on its buses this November.

Drivers will also be pulling over, if it's safe to do so, at 11am on Armistice Day (Saturday, November 11) and Remembrance Sunday (November 12) to observe two minutes of silence.

Managing director Andrew Wickham said: "People in this area are rightfully proud of our country’s military - as is the team here at Salisbury Reds.

"As part of this community, we are keen to show our support for all those in the services.

“The work our troops do in unimaginably hostile war zones is incredibly humbling. And we hope, by proudly displaying our poppies and raising awareness for this worthwhile cause, we’re backing our words with actions."

The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s annual fundraising initiative, starting in late October and running through to Armistice Day.
