WW2 Veterans raise a glass to HM The Queen

Veterans who support the work of The London Taxi Benevolent Association For War Disabled – also known as the Taxi Charity - met outside Buckingham Palace today to toast the health of HM The Queen as she becomes the longest reigning British monarch. The 30 veterans who collect funds all year round outside the capital’s tube and train stations were on their way to a lunch hosted by the charity at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair. The veterans were transported to and from their destinations today by a fleet of London cabbies, offering their time and services for free. Only licenced London taxi drivers can drive for the Taxi Charity, which counts Dame Vera Lynn and Joanna Lumley among its patrons.
