A tribute to WWII veteran, Harry Bailey



This wonderful video, filmed and edited by Joe Cartwright and Jon Cox, is a tribute to Harry Bailey, master of the collection bucket, who passed away on 28 April 2021, aged 99.


Harry, from Lewisham, was a huge part of the Taxi Charity family.


During World War II, Harry was in the Royal Army Service Corps and worked on the Mulberry Harbour as part of the D-Day Landings.


He was presented with the Légion d’Honneur in 2016, while in Normandy with the Taxi Charity.


He was equally loved by the veterans the charity supports and the London cabbies who volunteer their time to take the veterans on trips across Europe and the UK. Harry was a regular on all the trips and he will be greatly missed by all.
