Telling our story

Telling Our Story

Our members, volunteers and staff have been at the heart of the Royal British Legion since our formation in 1921.

In our centenary year we are celebrating the people who have not only contributed to our history, but to their communities. By bringing to life their personal stories, memories and charitable work, we can tell the story of the last 100 years.

From silk poppies to personal testimonies of support, explore our stories that celebrate 100 years of honouring and supporting those who protect our way of life.

This is your story. It’s about you, your people, your branches, your community, your achievements and connections.

Simply email us your stories and photographs to tellingourstory@britishlegion.org.uk and one of our team members will upload this into our digital library.

Tell us your stories

We are asking you to delve into the history of our branches, members, volunteers and community work to share RBL related records, artefacts, experiences, personal stories and more. Be it assisting our beneficiaries, commemorating key events and anniversaries, bringing the community together, or simple stories of the day to day events in your area – no story, item or recollection is too small.
