The  Royal British Legion

The 4th of August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of Britain's entry into the First World War, a time when, in the words of Sir Edward Grey: "The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime".

But a candle of hope was lit in 1921 when The Royal British Legion was founded by veterans in the aftermath of the First World War. Nearly a century on, Service men and women, veterans, and their families still call on us for help with their daily lives.

The Royal British Legion's role as the national custodian of Remembrance, remains to honor the fallen and support the living.
