The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 235,000 members, 110,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities; helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed.

I have been a member of the Royal British Legion for many years.  The Legion exists to help members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families.

Support from The Royal British Legion starts after seven days of service and continues through life, long after service is over.  The Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 235,000 members, 110,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities; helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed.

Remembrance & Poppy Appeal

Every year the Royal British Legion leads the nation in commemorating and honouring those who have served and sacrificed.

We remember those who lost their lives on active service in all conflicts; from the beginning of the First World War right up to the present day, as well as all those who have served and their families.

Every year in November, The legion distributes paper poppies to raise vital funds to help today’s Armed Forces community.

Whether you’re a volunteer, member or proud Poppy Appeal collector – or however you choose to show your support – The Legion couldn’t do it without you.
