Welcome to the York Branch of The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is recognised as the national custodian of Remembrance.

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

Each year on Remembrance Sunday at 11 am, York Branch, together with other ex-Service organisations, is invited to attend the annual Service of Remembrance in the City Memorial Gardens.

Along with the military, ex-Service personnel numbering approximately 150 march through the City supported by some 15 Legion and other Regimental standards.

The ex service contingent meets in Stonegate, York from 10am and by kind permission of the landlord members are invited to use the facilities of the Punch Bowl prior to and after the parade.
