Upcoming Events in County

Area - Out and About

We follow the old Berkshire boundaries, then along the line of the Thames north towards Oxford and finally west to Shrivenham. This reflects the traditional regimental recruiting area of the now disbanded Royal Berkshire Regiment. The area is shown pictorially here.

The Legion is very active in the County with 48 branches, 16 Clubs and approx 10,000 members. The County Offices are in Arborfield Cross, near Reading. It is here that the County Secretary, the County Welfare Office and the Community Fundraiser are located.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 Berkshire.

Membership of The Royal British Legion is available to all adults, not just members or ex-members of the forces and we always welcome new members. Drop into your local branch or click here to find out how you can join.
