Membership of The Royal British Legion is available to all adults, not just members or ex-members of the Armed Forces and we always welcome new members. Online Membership Joining will be closed from 28 March 2015 until mid May in preparation for the introduction of the new system and new membership forms will be available here in early April to take it along to your local branch. Don't forget to fill in the Direct Debit part of the form too.
