Youth Membership

Youth Members

Youth membership is a great way for young people to learn more about Remembrance whilst supporting the Armed Forces community.

Our diverse membership can share their experiences of life in the Armed Forces community and in doing so can help ensure that future generations remember those who served. 


Become a youth member

Youth membership is free for anyone aged 12-18 years old. To join a completed paper application is required with consent from a parent or guardian. Please contact your local branch to find out more.

Youth groups and local branches

Organisations like the Guides, Scouts or one of the Cadet organisations can become affiliated to a local Royal British Legion branch. This is another great way of sharing the experience of Legion membership with younger people.
Please see Affiliated Voices, the newsletter for Cambridgeshire youth groups.
