Welcome to the Windlesham Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Windlesham Branch
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 Windlesham Branch is a well attended and active branch which enjoys both lively Branch meetings, usually with a guest speaker, and a range of other trips and social events that help further the Legion aims of Remembrance and Support through fundraising and welfare activities.

Remembrance Sunday - 10th November
This year’s Remembrance Sunday service will begin with a the reading of names, wreath laying and silence at the War Memorial at St John’s Church, Windlesham. Members should be in place at the Memorial by 10.45 at the latest. Please gather to the left of the Memorial and follow the choir and dignitaries into the church after the wreath laying is complete.
11th November Parade
The Branch will once again mark the 11th November by gathering on the Field of Remembrance at 10.45am for a short service conducted by our Chaplain, Rev Derek Browning. Members are asked to dress in blazers, Legion or regimental tie, grey trousers and medals. Immediately after the service, members are invited to take part in a short wreath laying ceremony before entering the newly opened Pavilion for coffee. We are hopeful that our service will be supported by a Piper and Bugler from Gordon’s School.

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.
