The Royal British Legion invites all supporters to join as members. They can join as a Youth member from the age of 12 to 18 years or sign up as a full member from the age of 16 years.
Everyone is welcome to join the Legion, regardless of whether or not they have a Service background.
Benefits of Legion Membership
Members will receive a free subscription to Legion Magazine which comes out six times per year and has lots of information about the Legion's work throughout the country and abroad.
Members can take part in social and sporting activities at local level and at national level.
Members can also become involved in ceremonial events, for example indirectly through your entitlement to tickets for the Festival of Remembrance, or directly by becoming a Standard Bearer.
Members have a voice in the organisation and can vote at Branch level.
With our large membership, the Legion maintains a high profile in the public eye, which helps our lobbying effort in Westminster.
As the nation's custodian of Remembrance your membership of the Royal British Legion ensures the continuing memory of the sacrifice made by our Service personnel.
How to join
You can now join 'On line'.
The annual membership fee is £18. Individual branches may charge a subscription fee on top of this.
Contact your nearest Branch or County Office for a Membership and Direct Debit Form (PDF). The County Office can also tell you about Branches and activities in your local area.
