Welcome to the Barnoldswick & District Branch of The Royal British Legion
Welcome to our Legion
The Royal British Legion provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces, past and present, and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safe guards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. It is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
