Remembrance in 2021

In 2021 we are marking 100 years since the nation’s collective Remembrance traditions were first bought together.

The poppy, two-minute silence, Armistice Day, the service for the Unknown Warrior, and the march-past at the Cenotaph are traditions that millions participate in every year. 

And this year we are reflecting on what the next 100 years of Remembrance could look like by examining how, who, and why we remember. 


Telling our story

As we celebrate our centenary you can discover how the RBL has evolved through our Telling Our Story project which celebrates our members, volunteers and staff, who have been at the heart of the Royal British Legion since our formation in 1921.

Our national Remembrance traditions will continue to be an integral part of how our nation remembers.

But as we look forward we consider how people may want to remember personally or as part of their community.

They may wish to visit the Remembrance Glade at the National Memorial Arboretum, or mark the roles of those who served and sacrificed at different times of the year, such as Commonwealth Day.
