Welcome to the Aldbury Branch of The Royal British Legion
Aldbury Branch located in West Hertfordshire, was dedicated on the 12th December 1927 and we remain, to this day, a small but committed proactive Branch driven by the central ideals of our Royal Charter by being:
- The National Custodian of Remembrance, here in the village of Aldbury;
- Bringing true welfare support to all Veterans & their dependents by our proactive work within the Branch Community Support Scheme for those in need & raising the funds to achieve this through the Poppy Appeal as well as undertaking Casework for those in greater need;
- Supporting each other, through comradeship.
In January 2000 the Branch was awarded the County Cup for Branch Efficiency and also the County Cup for most improved membership numbers. In 2000 we had 29 members, today we have 56, in a small village of just 900 homes in total.
At the Legion's National Conference that same year the Branch became the National Runner-Up in the Lister Cup competition.
Aldbury Branch normally meets on the last Friday of each month at the Greyhound Inn Aldbury HP23 5RT - but the Secretary or one of the Committee can be found there most afternoons in the public bar so introduce yourself and make contact, all are welcome or contact our Secretary directly at email@example.com
Membership is open to everyone as long as you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help to support those who have served and their families, please come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not this is a national charity not a Regimental Association.
Legion Members ensure that:
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made, are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community retain their voice and that their concerns are brought into the public arena.
- Their welfare needs are always met.
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.

The Branch has the use of the "Aldbury Peace Memorial Institute" which was erected at public expense for the returning survivor's of WWI. The first action they took was to create a slate naming their 26 lost friends from Aldbury and is now officially recognised as the Aldbury War Memorial:

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 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.
