Welcome to The Royal British Legion in Hampshire
We are here to administer and support the delivery of welfare services and the membership and fundraising activities of the Legion's branches and clubs throughout Hampshire.

The Legion in the Community
The Royal British Legion plays an active role in the local community, and we rely on the help of our members to carry out our work in their local areas. There are many ways people can help and become involved, and it is essential to our work for the serving and ex-Service community.
To raise public awareness of what the Legion does in our community and encourage more people to get involved with the welfare and membership activities of the Legion, we participate in various events and activities such as:
- County Shows
- Local Fetes/Fairs
- Open Evenings
- Armed Forces Day (previously Veterans Day)
- attending Carnivals, Military Air Shows & Military Open Days
