Lyme Regis

Welcome to the Lyme Regis 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.

We are located in the small Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis. Our branch numbers just over 100 members of all ages ranging from serving members of the Armed Forces in their twenties to veterans of the Second World War as well as ordinary members of the public who believe in the Legion Values. Together they help to look after the welfare of Armed Forces personnel and their families both past and present, and maintain the memory of those who have given so much in the defence of our country.

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 localy, regionaly and nationaly throughout the year.

Lyme Regis does not have its own club, but during the winter the Branch has a skittles team that plays in the local league. Our home pub is The Ship Inn located in Coombe Street. Details of matches can be obtained from Jon Hunt our team Captain via email to Jon Hunt, jh2060609@gmail.com .

The current fees for 2023/2024 are £19.

Supporters are always welcome.

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.
