Welcome to the Dover White Cliffs 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.
The Dover White Cliffs Branch meets at 8.00pm on the first Wednesday of every month at the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club, 4-5 Waterloo Crescent, Dover CT16 1LA, Kent.
Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support 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. We also welcome young people to join us as Youth Members: they have free membership from the age of 12 until their 18th birthday. For more details about joining us, please contact our Membership Secretary, Mrs. Debbie Everett.
Alternatively, you may go online to apply for membership here.
A number of local cadet forces have affiliated to us and regularly take part in our parades and fund raising activities. They are the:-
- Astor College Combined Cadet Force,
- Dover & Deal Sea Cadets,
- Dover Grammar School for Boys Combined Cadet Force,
- Dover Detachment of the Kent Army Cadet Force,
- 354 (Dover) Squadron, Air Training Corps,
- Duke of York's Royal Military School Combined Cadet Force.
Legion membership makes sure 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.
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 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.
