Chairman’s Address for the Winter Newsletter 2011.

Welcome to the Berlin Branch of The Royal British Legion





Chairman's Address for the Winter Newsletter 2011.


It is with deep regret that I have to report the passing of  Berlin Branch Member,  Harry Spinks, whose Funeral service was held at West End Cemetery in Charlottenburg on Friday 11th November,2011.

Our Branch Standard was on parade and Frank Knox laid a wreath on behalf of the RBL Berlin Branch.

I would like to thank all the members who attended our AGM at St Georges Church, where our current Management team was re-elected.

I would like to thank Fred Pallister for his hard work regarding the Poppy appeal over the last two years and was pleased to present him with a Branch certificate of Appreciation at the Meeting.

Martin Thomson is taking over the Poppy Appeal and we wish him every success in the future.

The Friday evening  bar and  catering remains in the very capable hands of Hannalore  Pallister and Friday evenings are  very friendly and cosy gatherings.

Please feel free to pay us a visit if you have not called in for a while.

The one area where we are lacking in resources is the Social Committee and we are asking for volunteers to help set up a Branch Social committee.

This is in order to lessen the burden on those who have previously taken care of these matters on your behalf and if we wish a successful Burns night on Saturday  28th January 2012, help would be appreciated.

All those interested in taking part, please make contact with the management team. 

The Branches Christmas Party will be held at the Senioren Klub, Wever strasse,Südpark, Spandau, between 1500 and 2100 hours  on Saturday, 17th December  2011.

The venue has proved ideal for our Branch functions and the Management team wish that as many members will attend as possible and please feel free to bring along friends as there will be live entertainment and buffet food with Christmas Cake.

The entrance fee, €10, has been kept as low as possible, and all drinks are the usual RBL Branch Prices.

In order to cater for the party we ask all members wishing to attend the Christmas Party  place their name and number of guests attending  on the list at the Brach HQ.

Members can also telephone or email details to:

Chairman      Thomas Smith   030 36710216     email

Vice Chairman   Frank Knox   030 3667113        email
