Antwerp Branch Royal British Legion

Welcome to the Antwerp Branch

The Antwerp Branch of the Royal British Legion was formed on 18 April 1922, the first RBL Branch in Belgium at that time. More than 100 years on, the Branch is still going strong. Our membership is made up of people sympathetic to the Legion's aims as well as ex-service men and women of all ranks. 

The Antwerp branch has an enthusiastic team of dedicated Standard Bearers ensuring a much-appreciated presence at multiple commemorative events in the Greater Antwerp area. Among these is our flagship ceremony at the Cromwell tank monument which we organise on behalf of the city of Antwerp during the annual Liberation weekend.  

Come November, our members are out in force to raise money for the Poppy Appeal. 

Furthermore, we have a fully qualified Branch Community Support team who look after our beneficiaries. 

And last but least, there are monthly Open Evenings and our ever-popular lunches which are a good occasion for members to meet and to welcome new members. 

Feel free to have a look at our FB page for more information on our activities. 

Best wishes,

The Antwerp Branch committee
