The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading charity providing financial, social and emotional support to millions who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, and their dependants.


Currently, nearly 11 million people are eligible for our support and we receive
around 300,000 calls for help every year.

The Legion was founded in 1921 as a voice for the ex-Service community and our 550,000 members continue to ensure that this voice does not go unheard.

Although the needs of ex-Service people have changed over the years, we are still there to safeguard their welfare, interests and memory. British service people are in action around the world every day of the year.  
They know that if they need our support - now or in the future - the Legion is always on active duty for them.

Polish memorial

A small team of Royal British Legion committee members cleared the site of weeds, pruned the roses and made the memorial stone of the Polish Air Force memorial on Anning Road more visible to the public in 2007.


David Manners of the Royal British Legion said: “Several thousand Polish airmen died on our behalf during WWII and we think it is only fitting that this humble memorial, which I believe to be the only one in south- west England, is given the respect it deserves."
