Membership

The Royal British Legion is one of the UK's largest membership organisations, with over 360,000 members in the UK. We also have 11,000 members overseas. Members get together through our network of clubs and branches throughout the world and have the opportunity to become involved in the welfare and fundraising work of the Legion. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.

Advantages of being an RBL member

  • Social and sporting activities at your local branch throughout the year.
  • Access to a wide variety of exclusive Legion services, local and International, discount schemes and access to the Member Benefits Directory.
  • Opportunity to become involved in the Poppy Appeal, Remembrance Day activities and other British Legion charity works and fundraising events.

Membership - Branch/Club and environs

The Legion now has Single Status membership, giving all members equal rights to participate in all decision making processes of the organisation. Applicants under the age of 17 will be entered as Youth Members, although this is currently unavailable within our Branch. The move to Single membership does not change the status of the beneficiary, the person who is the object of our fundraising and benevolence activities. The only people who can benefit from our funds remain the members of the Service and ex-Service community who are in need.

The per person fee for membership of the Royal British Legion is £20 or its Turkish Lira equivalent at the rate of exchange on the day. The fee includes your local branch registration and administration fee of £4, the remaining £16 serves as the Legion's membership registration and administration fees, your subscription to 'Legion' magazine and a small donation to support the Service, ex-Service personnel and their dependents families in need. As annual membership renewal involves no registration, membership renewal fees are reduced to £16 or its Turkish equivalent at the rate of exchange on the day.
