Joining the Branch
Membership is open to anyone who supports the values of the Legion - you don't need to have served. We invite members to get involved in our fundraising and welfare work, education and Remembrance ceremonies. All applications are carefully considered by the Branch Committee.
Please note that becoming a member does not entitle you to become a Legion beneficiary. Beneficiaries are those who have served with any arm of the British Forces for a minimum period of seven days, their spouses and dependents.
Benefits of Legion Membership
Membership entitles you to a wide range of Legion exclusive services and discounts through our parent site in the UK. You will receive a copy of Legion, an attractive, informative glossy magazine, six times a year. In addition you will receive a (roughly) quarterly Branch Newsletter documenting what is happening in the Branch, as well as forthcoming events.
You can become involved in the Poppy Appeal and Remembrance activities, and there are opportunities to participate in the ceremonial duties and perhaps serve on the Branch Committee or train as a Standard Bearer or Welfare case worker, looking after the needs of ex-Service men and women, their families and dependants.
