A Little History

The Royal British Legion has been supporting Service men and women, ex-serving personnel and their families since 1921. And we're not going anywhere.

The British Legion was formed on 15 May 1921, bringing together four national organisations of ex-Servicemen that had established themselves after the First World War:

  • The National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers

  • The British National Federation of Discharged and Demobilized Sailors and Soldiers

  • The Comrades of The Great War

  • The Officers' Association

    The amalgamation of these diverse bodies can be attributed largely to two men: Field Marshal Earl Haig and Tom Lister of The Federation of Discharged and Demobilized Sailors and Soldiers. Lord Haig served as the President of The Royal British Legion until his death
