The Royal British Legion

Donate in memory

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

We support serving and ex-serving personnel all year round, every day of the week.

Our support starts after one day of service and continues through life, long after service is over.

Battles of Kohima and Imphal

We remember the 80th anniversaries of the Battles of Kohima and Imphal, in north-east India. Troops of the Fourteenth Army, 85% of whom hailed from pre-partition India, courageously held off repeated attacks by Japanese forces for months, but at great cost.

The eventual defeat of Japanese forces was a turning point in the war in the east, and the springboard for the eventual liberation of Burma.
