Welcome to the Aldbury Branch of The Royal British Legion
Happy New Year!!
Aldbury Branch was established in December 1927 and we remain a small but committed Branch to the focal points of the Legion being:
- The National Custodian of Remembrance;
- Bringing welfare support to all Veterans & their dependents in need;
- Support each other through comradeship.
In December 2000 the Branch was awarded the County Cup for Branch Efficiency and also the County Cup for most improved membership numbers.
At the Legion's National Conference in September 2020, the Branch became the Runner-Up to the National Lister Cup for Branch Efficiency.
Aldbury Branch normally meets at 5pm on the last Friday of each month at the in Greyhound Inn Aldbury HP23 5RT - all welcome or simply contact our Secretary, especially during Tier 3&4 Covid restrictions at email@example.com
Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support for those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
Legion membership ensures that
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.

The Branch uses the "Aldbury Peace Memorial Institute" which was erected at public expense for the survivor's of WWI. The first action they undertook was to create a slate naming their 26 lost friends from Aldbury and is now officially the Aldbury War Memorial:

About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
