Welcome to the Camborne Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
HELP US FIND OUR VETS
The Legion is on a mission to take all surviving WW2 veterans back to where they served.
Friday 2 February 2018
The Royal British Legion wants to take all surviving veterans of the Second World War on a free
Remembrance tour to where they served during their time in the Armed Forces.
Tours will take place throughout 2018 and will give WW2 veterans the chance to meet up with fellow
veterans and pay their respects at battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials.
The Treasury is enabling these free tours to be funded by Libor fines,
and will enable the veterans to return with a family member and carer.
Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
said: “I’m delighted that we can continue to support those who want to return with
The Royal British Legion to the countries where they served.
We have committed over £5 million of Libor funds to help those who fought for our
freedom to return to pay their respects and safeguard the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”
No database exists of WW2 veterans who are still alive today, so the Legion is asking the public to help
us make sure every surviving veteran can take part.
If you’re a grandchild, neighbour or carer and know someone who fought in WW2,
please tell them about this opportunity and encourage them to sign up!

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.

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 two 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.
