Safeguarding the welfare, interests and memories of those who served in the Armed Forces
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading charity providing financial, social and emotional support to millions who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, and their dependants. Currently, nearly 13 million people are eligible for our support and we receive around 300,000 calls for help every year.
The Legion was founded in 1921 as a voice for the ex-Service community and our 550,000 members continue to ensure that this voice does not go unheard. Although the needs of ex-Service people have changed over the years, we are still there to safeguard their welfare, interests and memory. British service people are in action around the world every day of the year. They know that if they need our support - now or in the future - the Legion is always on active duty for them
The Bamford Branch of the Royal British Legion has been running for many years, as time has passed the membership has fallen and new members would be most welcome. Our meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 8 pm. If you would like further information please contact:-
