Rail backing for Britain’s bravest

Listen to this article

The rail industry is continuing its backing for Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI).

Network Rail purchases over 100 signs a week made by ex-servicemen and is keen to support RBLI’s new social enterprise, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company (BBMC).

Launched on 20 April 2016, BBMC provides signs, wooden pallets, print, mail and other services to Network Rail and other infrastructure companies. The work offers injured veterans a chance to put to use skills learned in the Armed Forces.

Importantly it provides independence. ‘We are proud to purchase signs from Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company,’ says Nick Elliott MBE, managing director of Network Rail’s National Supply Chain.

‘By doing so, we know that we are not only investing in high-quality, competitively priced products for our network, but that we are also investing in the continued employment of ex-Forces personnel. We are delighted that, as a business, we can give back to those who have given so much for their country.’
