Remembrance Sunday 2011

London cabbies have done it again.

This is the second time the ( UCG)  United Cabbies group have arranged taxi’s for transporting War veterans to the cenotaph in Whitehall.

There were so many cabs that they had to have a double queue, it stretched from the centre of Westminster bridge all the way back to Lambeth Palace Road, Past St Thoma’s Hospital.

Once again, I take my hat off to the organizers and marshals and of course the drivers who helped out.
