The Royal British Legion
Since 1921 The Royal British Legion has been at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community through thick and thin – ensuring their unique contribution is never forgotten.
Our support starts after seven days of service and continues long after life in the Armed Forces.
We help veterans’ young and old transition into civilian life. From rehabilitation courses, to tailored personal support for recovery, homelessness and financial advice – we’re by their side, every step of the way to help them and their families make a difference in their lives.
Every year we take thousands of Armed Forces families on breaks, so they can spend some much-needed quality time together. We also support older veterans with home adaptations, nursing services and through six dedicated award winning care homes, run just for ex-servicemen and women.

In 2018 The Royal British Legion is leading the nation in saying Thank You to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world during the First World War.
Thank You is two little words that mean so much and we are saying Thank You in this final centenary year to the whole first world war generation, including:
- Those who fell on the battlefields and those who returned home.
- Those who helped change the role of women in Britain.
- Those responsible for advances in Medicine, manufacturing and innovation,
- Those from Countries now part of the Commonwealth who answered the call to support the nation.
At this year’s Great British Beer Festival we will be inviting visitors to raise a glass and say Thank You on Wednesday 8th August, which marks the start of the last ‘100 days’ of the First World War.
We will have more information on our stall on how you and your community can say Thank You in your own way or you can visit www.rbl.org.uk/thankyou
