Keeping their memory alive

The Royal British Legion was formed in 1921 to support the veterans of the Great War. But since then, Britain has been involved in many other wars and fields of Service, creating a continuous supply of Service men and women, and their families, who need our assistance. We are recognised as the Nation's custodians of Remembrance.

The Cenotaph in Whitehall and numerous war memorials around the country commemorate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the First and Second World Wars.

2008 names being engraved on the AFMAnd to commemorate those that have lost their lives in the Service of their country since 1945, the Armed Forces Memorial was opened in 2007 in the grounds of the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

Each June, the names of those who have died in conflict, as a result of terrorist action or on training exercises, in the previous calendar year, are added to this impressive memorial, as a permanent reminder of their sacrifice. The honour roll can be viewed here.

This page is a tribute to those lost in Service, whose names will not appear in stone until mid 2014.
