Can one of you wise Londoners clarify this for me please.
We are off to the big smoke on monday and i have a 3 day travel card and i understood that my dcs 5 and 7 can travel free on buses and tubes without needing a ticket.
Is this right?
Thank you

yes

if you go through the tube barriers, head towards the side where the tube bod will open the gate for you to go through all at once (there's a picture of luggage normally on that gate)

oi is perfectly correct and here's the TFL advice note:
