Our members help us provide support to the Armed Forces community and their families.

Members are a vital part of our national network and are involved in all that we do – from fundraising during the Poppy Appeal to providing local support in local areas.

No longer a member? By renewing your membership we can continue to provide help to those most in need. 

I love being a member. I've met people from all over the UK and feel part of the Royal British Legion family. Ellie Parke, RBL member

Representing the Royal British Legion

Our members have a strong ceremonial tradition dating back to 1921. We're proud to have members represent RBL across the UK, during Remembrance services and beyond.

Join RBL

Our members are important to everything we do.

To say thank you, we are delighted to be able to offer our members a range of exclusive offers and discounts, including priority tickets for our Festival of Remembrance.

Being a member also means that you can be involved in the governance of RBL – and our Annual Conference allows members to take part in the shaping and direction of the charity.

My husband is our branch Chairman so RBL is a big part of our lives. Everyone is welcome! Sylvia Hemingway, RBL member
