History of the Royal British Legion:

The Legion was formed on 1st July 1921 after the 1st World War. The Royal Charter was granted in 1925 and the British Legion became The Royal British Legion (RBL) on the 50th anniversary in 1971. The RBL exists to promote the welfare of ex members and serving members of the armed forces of the Crown, and their dependents. The following is the 1945 epitaph on the Kohima (Burma) memorial.
