Welcome to the Abbots Langley 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.
Abbots Langley Branch meets at The Working Mens Club, 21 Trowley Rise, Abbots Langley WD5 0LN 07527 213 921 on the first Tuesday of the month at 7-30pm for 8pm.
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.

If you are struggling with essential costs such as energy, utilities and sudden expenses you cannot afford, you may be eligible for support through our new and expanded Cost of Living Grants.

Financial and employment support
Choosing to leave or join the Armed Forces can be a life-changing decision which is why we offer financial and employment support before, during and after time in the Armed Forces.
This includes financial assistance to help people find suitable work as well as expert advice for serving personnel preparing to transition to civilian life.
Whether it’s debts, benefits or balancing the books, our team of financial advisors are just a phone call away and help thousands of ex-serving personnel every year.
For those who are homeless or face becoming homeless we provide expert advice and support, including help to challenge statutory decisions on grant funding, housing allocation and eligibility.
Our support starts after one day of service and continues through life, long after service is over.
Veterans’ Gateway supports veterans and their families to find the help they need.

Veterans’ Gateway also has an extensive range of self-help resources, allowing veterans to search for help and advice independently on a range of issues such as housing, employment and finances.
