Each year in the month of November, we pause and remember the boys and girls and faithful animals who fought to protect King and country and the population therein.
We now also include in our remembrance the service men and women who have lost their lives in subsequent conflicts since the two great wars. The Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan. And not least the service men and women who have been murdered at the hands of terrorists.
Without the help of the Royal British Legion many veterans would be destitute and without the vital assistance which they have needed since leaving the forces. It is an ever growing project keeping up with the problems and needs of the younger generation of ex service personnel and providing care in old age for the veterans of the two World Wars. And no doubt there will be more to come.
It is for this reason alone, of continuity, that the Royal British Legion never ceases to be in need of more and more funding, which is relied upon through our donations. That is why many of us particularly give so generously at this poignant time of year, and also throughout the rest of the year to come.
This year more than ever the Royal British Legion needs your support.
