Members Stories

Welcome to the Orihuela Costa and District Branch of The Royal British Legion

In this section I am hoping to build up an archive of memories, provided by branch members, of one or more aspects of their military service, their service with the Royal British Legion, or the military service of a family member.

If you have anything that you would wish to contribute to these pages please email the secretary
