We’re here for the Armed Forces community


The Legion is here to help members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families. And we’re not going anywhere.

After leaving the Armed Forces, not everything translates.


Last year to celebrate Armed Forces day we asked civilians to guess what military slang means... here’s a fun video of their replies!

We are here to help


We provide lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.


We've been here since 1921 and we'll be here as long as they need us.

We remember


We remember those who lost their lives on active service in all conflicts; from the beginning of the First World War right up to the present day. We also remember all those who have served and their families.
