    Support the Armed Forces community

    Pass on a lifetime of comradeship, care and respect to the next generations of our Forces family.

    For 100 years the Royal British Legion has provided much needed welfare and comradeship to millions.

    We will continue to ensure their sacrifices are recognised and that people in the Armed Forces community always have somewhere to turn.

    There is no obligation to include RBL in your Will to use the free Will writing services. If you do choose to, you can feel assured that your gift will play a crucial role in helping serving and ex-serving personnel for generations to come.

    Gifts in Wills directly fund our vital support services and make up a significant part of our income each year. Every year, we are able to provide life-changing support to help thousands of people in the Armed Forces community, thanks to the generous gifts left in Wills by people like you.

    The service we received was outstanding. Our local solicitor was wonderful and made the process very simple.
