Welcome to the Little Common Branch of The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is recognised as the national custodian of Remembrance.

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

Little Common Branch members assemble at the RBL Club in Meads Avenue at 10.30am and parade to St Mark's Church for a Remembrance service, including the Two Minute Silence at 11am, after which the parade returns to the War Memorial where there is a short Act of Remembrance and wreaths are laid at around 12 noon.

Unless 11 November happens to fall on a Sunday, members also meet at the War Memorial at 10.45am on 11 November for the Two Minutes Silence and a short Act of Remembrance.
