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.
It is with much sadness and regret that we announce that Bob Rice passed away peacefully in Kingsmead House Nursing Home just before Christmas. Bob was 89 years old and had been a member of our branch since 1992. Prior to that he was a member of the Bagshot and Lightwater Branch of The Royal British Legion.
His family have asked the Committee to pass on the details of Bob's funeral which will take place on Thursday Jan 19th at 2.15pm at Aldershot Crematorium, Guildford Road, Aldershot, GU12 4BP followed by refreshments at Kingsmead House, 156 Mytchett Road, Mytchett ,Camberley GU16 6AE to which all members are invited. It would be most helpful if you could let the Branch Secretary know whether you are able to attend.

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.
