The Legion works to ensure that the people of the United Kingdom remember all those who have lost their lives on active service to the Crown, and honours the service of the Armed Forces and veterans, and the contribution of their families – our beneficiary community.

World War 1 Centenary

In this exceptional centenary year, we’re leading a national movement to say ‘Thank You’ to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world during the First World War.

What we Remember

The Royal British Legion is recognised as a national champion of Remembrance. Its purpose is to make Remembrance understood and available to all and to pass it on to the next generation.

Ways we Remember

Remembrance is a social benefit which promotes social cohesion and national unity and contributes to the fulfilment of the Armed Forces Covenant by the Nation.


The Legion is responsible for the organisation of a number of commemorative and national Remembrance events.


The Legion has created downloadable lesson plans and teacher support materials in partnership with the National Literacy Trust


Join one of our Remembrance Travel tours to visit cemeteries, memorials and battlefields of the First and Second World Wars.
