At 11am on November 11, all London stations will fall silent to honour the sacrifices of the Armed Forces

Poppy roundels have appeared across the Transport for London network, paying respect ahead of Remembrance Sunday. The specially designed poppy roundels can be spotted at 20 Underground, Overground and bus stations across the network to mark the  Remembrance period.

As well as the roundels, poppy vinyls will be  featured on all Underground, Overground, DLR and tram vehicles, plus Elizabeth line trains for the first time. Poppy flags are flying at TfL piers with giant poppies wrapped around selected London buses.

Transport for London will also continue its long-running partnership with the Royal British Legion (RBL) by continuing its Poppy Appeal. The Poppy Appeal helps to raise money and provide life-long support to the armed forces.

Shane Richie, known for roles on shows such as Eastenders and Benidorm has also got involved. He has recorded a special station message which will be played across multiple Underground and Overground stations in London, encouraging people to give what they can. This announcement will be broadcast on Thursday, November 3.

Esther Sharples, Director Asset Performance Delivery at Transport for London, said: “We are proud to once again be working with the Royal British Legion to support their fundraising across our network for veterans and those who currently serve in the armed forces. We know times are tough right now, but anything you can spare for this very important and long-standing cause will go a long way.

“We hope customers will spot our popular poppy tributes while they use the transport network and pause to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces.” Andy Taylor-Whyte, Fundraising Lead at the Royal British Legion, said: “We are extremely grateful for TfL’s fantastic support of the RBL’s Poppy Appeal each year.

“From the poppy roundels at stations to welcoming the hundreds of Armed Forces collectors who’ll be out across the network for this year’s London Poppy Day, we hope that commuters can help us raise as much as possible on this, our biggest fundraising day of the appeal.Thanks to TfL, Londoners can show that they care and that the service and sacrifice of serving personnel, veterans and their families will never be forgotten.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to all TfL staff and customers today – your generosity enables us to continue providing vital support to those who protect us despite never having met us.”
