Welcome to the Andover Branch of The Royal British Legion formed in June 1921

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 Andover Branch of The Royal British Legion has been in existence since June 1921. 

We meet every month on the first Monday of the month, the meeting starts at 19:30 hours at The Royal British Legion Club, 4 Western Road.(entrance via Osborne Road)

The Andover Royal British Legion has two aspects, the Branch and the Club.

The two co exist side by side with their own committees and Presidents.

The Branch supports the charity work and works within the Royal Charter of incorporation and schedules.

The Club is the social aspect and is a business registered as a Limited Company within its own right but it supports the Branch in its charity work within its own set of rules.

The Club has its own website and can be accessed here www.trblclubandover.co.uk

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.
