Archived News - War
For 85 years the Legion has supported and cared for those who have suffered as a result of their war service and for their families; from World War 1 to the sad events taking place today. The Legion is as relevant today as it was when instituted all those years ago and there can be few families not touched by the distressing results of war.
The Legion reaches out to as many of those in need as possible through its wide range of welfare services now under the blanket name of `Poppy Support'.
This year Remembrance Sunday falls on 12th November and house to house collections may take place between 28th October and 11th November. Please give as generously as you can. While there is war, there will be need!
Keith and Jean Stanley. Hon. Organisers.
