The Royal British Legion and the Centenary

The Legion’s WW1 Centenary Guide

The Legion has put together a WW1 Centenary guide which is intended to inform you of the Legion’s Centenary plans. It can be downloaded here in pdf form and contains our position and key messages on the Centenary along with some of the dates of planned large-scale commemorations.

 

It has snapshots of some of the national activities we will be announcing more fully in coming months – for updates, please refer to www.britishlegion.org.uk/ww1centenary. There is also a section on how you can apply for funds for your own Centenary projects, and a few success stories.

 TRBL Comradeship Strategy

Comradeship within the Legion is a key component of the overall strategy of the Legion that underpins much of what the organisation achieves. It was one of our founding objectives and we are seeking again to have it as a Legion Objective.

In 1921 when we were formed, the therapeutic value to ex service personnel meeting to share their experiences was an important part of their recovery and reintegration into society. That process is as important today as it was then.

This strategy seeks to develop a sustainable supporter base going forward that effectively assists current efforts and that provides the baseplate for future work through raising awareness and garnering support within the widest possible range of communities.

As a strategy it is supported by two sub-strategies; Membership and Armed Forces Engagement. Comradeship will be experienced inside and outside the membership and delivering the Membership Strategy and engaging with the armed Forces will both play pivotal role in delivering our overall vision for Comradeship.

Never Forget A Loved One

Donating in memory is a touching way to remember someone special by honouring their life and also supporting a cause that was important to them. A tribute to a loved one's life is a special salute to Service people, past and present, who are in need. All donations we receive in memory allow us to care for more elderly veterans and provide greater rehabilitation and support for today's returning heroes.

We offer a number of ways for your loved one to be remembered from a simple In Memoriam donation to a personalised tribute website, click here to find out more.
