The Legion came in and listened, supported and helped us come back together as a family.
I love being a member. I feel like part of the family and I've made so many new friends.
The Legion means everything to me, that I can be there to help Service men and women.

In the aftermath of the WW1 it became apparent there was a need for an organisation to support and represent all members of the Armed Forces.
After 100 years, we look back on how RBL has worked with The Poppy Factory to support wounded, injured and sick veterans back into employment.
In our Centenary year we look at how we have supported ex-Servicemen into work for the last 100 years, and how we continue to support them today.
Since our earliest days 100 years ago, providing support for the Armed Forces community has been at the heart of what we do, and we are proud to have provided the community with a century of support.
In 1928, a decade after the end of the First World War, the British Legion took veterans and war widows on the Great Pilgrimage to remember those who lost their lives.
The British Legion Women’s Section was formed in 1921 to safeguard the interests of widows and families of ex-Servicemen.
We’ve campaigned on issues that matter most to the Armed Forces community for 100 years and we’re continuing to adapt to their needs for the future.
Since our earliest days we have championed the causes of serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.
