LOTHIAN Buses has unveiled a specially created ‘Poppy Bus’ to help mark Remembrance Day 2015 and pay tribute to Edinburgh’s war heroes.

It has been painted poppy red and adorned with poppy designs. It also has the messages ‘We Will Remember Them’ and “Lest We Forget’ emblazoned on either side.

The bespoke vehicle was revealed at Edinburgh Castle with the support of battalion members of The Royal Regiment of Scotland and ex-military members of staff at Lothian Buses.

Lt Col Charlie Platt, of The Royal Regiment of Scotland, said: “Hopefully everyone who sees and travels in this bus will remember the service and sacrifice of those men and women who have given their lives in defence of the country.

“The infantrymen of The Royal Regiment of Scotland will be supporting Remembrance events wherever we can, in the Lothians and beyond, and are proud to stand alongside veterans and the civilian community in support of Poppy Scotland.”
