About us

We help members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families all year round. We also campaign to improve their lives, organise the Poppy Appeal and remember the fallen.

Our Brand

Launched with the 2014 Poppy Appeal, the Legion has updated its look and feel giving it a fresh, modern and hopeful expression. 

Our History

The British Legion was formed on 15 May 1921, from four Organisations of ex-Servicemen, established after the First World War.


We ensure that we keep our supporters up to date with what we do and where their generous donations go.

Media Centre

The Royal British Legion is the major voice for Service and ex-Service people throughout the year.
