London cabbies waive fares for VJ Day veterans

Taxi drivers will be providing free transport for veterans attending the VJ Day commemorations taking place in London today.

The cabbies are offering their services to the London Taxi Benevolent Association for War Disabled - known as the Taxi Charity.

They will be driving the veterans to Horse Guards Parade for the ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory over Japan.

"I'm very excited as I didn't know if there was to be a celebration until recently. People ask me about VE Day and what I was doing then. 'Still fighting,' is what I tell them, the next day we were attacked by Kamikazes and we lost 35 men on one ship."

– DANNY MCCRUDDEN, ROYAL NAVY VETERAN

"When we think what these men and women went through for us, it is the least I can do to give up a few hours of time this Saturday to support them."

– DENNIS HAYES, BLACK CAB DRIVER
