This is the ‘remembrance & ceremonial’ side, of Greenhithe RBL, organising parades and ceremonial events, the branch has its own Standard, Standard Bearer and Bugler and is made up of every member – you must be a branch member before you can join the Social club!
Club and Branch work very closely and hand in hand, with joint events being organised (Armed Forces Day, Trips to Ypres or Normandy etc).
We are the nation's leading Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the Armed Forces past and present and their families.
The public are generally aware of this during the Poppy Appeal and Remembrance period from late October to mid November and we receive fantastic support with the majority of people wearing poppies.
But our work for our Armed Service family continues every day, and so we hope to have your support throughout the year. This can take many forms from a simple donation to the thrills of skydiving (if you want to this, we will organise it for you!).
HOW WE HELP
If you've served in the Forces or are the dependant of someone who has served, The Royal British Legion's services are available to help you. Around 9.5 million people in the UK are eligible for our support and we spend nearly £1.4 million a week helping those in the greatest need.
