National Express Dundee unveils Black Watch bus

Launch of Black Watch bus June 2014

National Express Dundee is showing its support for the local regiment ahead of Armed Forces Day (Saturday 28 June) by unveiling a specially commissioned livery, featuring the Black Watch tartan.

The decorated single decker vehicle was welcomed this morning at the Black Watch Monument in Dundee by Charlie Reid, a Sergeant Major in the Black Watch for 25 years and the President of Dundee and District Wrens Association, Mrs Babs Rickmann, whose late husband also worked as a bus inspector for Tayside Corporation for 40 years.

Phil Smith, Managing Director of National Express Dundee said: "I'm pleased to unveil our new Black Watch bus as a symbol of our support for the local regiment in time for Armed Forces Day 2014.  National Express Dundee is proud of the work done by our nation's armed forces and I think this is a fitting tribute to all the hard-working men and women who serve with the Royal Regiment of Scotland."

National Express Dundee's Black Watch Bus will also feature in Dundee's Armed Forces Day celebrations in the City Square on Saturday 5 July.
