Antwerp Branch Royal British Legion


Our standard bearers at the 11 November ceremony at Schoonselhof

The Antwerp Branch is committed to helping everyone understand the importance of remembrance so that sacrifices of those who were killed in conflict are not forgotten. 

As custodians of remembrance, the Antwerp Branch does its best to attend as many remembrance ceremonies as possible. Annually we are present at some 30 to 40 ceremonies in the Greater Antwerp area. 

The Branch parade marshalls and standard bearers' integrity, dignity and attention to detail are kept in high regard and we take great pride in representing the Royal British Legion at those ceremonies. 

In addition, we organise the annual Tank Ceremony on behalf of the City of Antwerp. Over the years, the Antwerp Branch has made a fine tradition of remembering those who liberated Antwerp at the Cromwell Tank memorial site. This intimate and personal ceremony has become an integral part of the City's remembrance ceremonies during the yearly Liberation Weekend.
