Membership is open whether you are serving, ex-Service or have little or no link with the Services; the Legion is still relevant to you. Apart from our many social activities, you can also get involved in our fund-raising and welfare work.
The Legion now has a Single Membership, giving all members equal rights to participate in Branch, County and National decision-making processes of the organisation.
Applicants under the age of eighteen will be entered as Youth Members. Please contact our Chairman or Secretary or just come along to our friendly meeting for further information regarding membership.

We hold monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of the month in the Daldry Gardens Community Lounge at 7.30pm; we have a variety of speakers at our meetings. Our primary aim is to raise money for the R.B.L. Benevolent Fund which helps all ex-Service men and women in the United Kingdom.
