Welcome to the Edington 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.
Edington Branch meets at 8pm on the first Monday of every
month at The Paulet Arms, Edington. Please see separate list of
dates for 2012 meetings.
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.

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.
