Ed's Diner want to show their appreciation to UK Veterans & Armed Forces Community by offering a free meal this Remembrance Sunday

Restaurant to offer free meals to UK War servicemen and women as part of Remembrance Sunday drive.

To celebrate this year's Remembrance Sunday on the 12th November, Ed’s Diner will be dishing out free servings of their mouthwatering menu to all members of the UK Armed Forces, Veterans & Armed Forces Community. Ed’s are always looking at ways to give back to local communities and on Remembrance Sunday would like to commemorate the efforts of men and women who gave their service.

In order to claim their free meal troops must present their Defence Privilege Card or MOD90 ID Card to one of the team when dining at Ed’s. They’ll be entitled to either the Thanksgiving Turkey Burger, The Original, Fried Chicken or Halloumi & Roasted Peppers Burger, all of which come with fries and bottomless soda.

Sam Wignell, Brand Director at Ed’s Diner said, 

“We have a huge admiration for the men and women that have risked their lives for our country and this is just a small token of gratitude from the team at Ed’s to show their appreciation to all army affiliates. We can’t wait to open our doors on Remembrance Sunday and feed our troops!”

New Search By website feature

New Search By website feature

The new Defence Discount Service adds to members ability to search for discounts and now incorporates a feature that has been a long-standing popular feature of our free mobile app - the Search By feature.

Members of Defence Discount Service can now use the website to search for offers and discounts by Phrase, by company or by category as well as by offer type.  Members could previously search by company via the drop down menu or by category by clicking on the category but the new search by phrase adds a new level to discount searching.

The discount search features have all been pulled into one space to make it simple for members of access.  The search by company, category or phrase can be accessed by Defence Discount Service members via the magnified glass icon which then pulls up all three options.

The search by company allows members to select a company that is offering a discount from the alphabetical list of discount providers.  The search by category allows members to see discounts in a particular category, such as Holidays and Travel discounts.  The phrase feature allows members to input a phrase of a company or item that they may be wishing to receive a discount on.
