Royal British Legion
Club & Branch
Friern Barnet Royal British Legion
Friern Barnet Royal British Legion Present Day
Our RBL branch was formed in 1927, by a group of gentlemen
to provide financial, social and emotional support to members
and ex-members of the armed forces and their families, and we
are still going strong to this day.
The British Legion - now The Royal British Legion - was formed
in 1921, from four seperate ex-service organisations, and is not
just about those who fought in the Two World Wars of the last
century, but also about those involved in many other conflicts
since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy
Today, anyone can join the RBL, and at Friern Barnet we
welcome everyone to our club. We welcome men and women of
all ages to become members. Anyone cam join the legion,
whether or not you have a connection with the armed forces,
and once you become a member you can visit any legion in the
U.K. or abroad.
Members of the legion meet through a network of branches and
clubs for social events, meetings and can become involved in
many activities of the legion, including caseworking, fundraising,
and legion in the community events both nationally and locally.
During October at Friern Barnet, we have our Poppy Shop open
daily, for the sale of wreaths and poppy donations and so that
the poppy boxes and tins can be collected.
