Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is known to millions for the work it does helping those who have served their country, not only in the Second World War but in conflicts since, and even ongoing as we see so tragically in the news. The nation comes to a halt on November 11th and rightly so to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you.

 

 

VE and VJ Days 75th Anniversary 2020

May 2020 will  see the 75th anniversary of VE Day and August the 75th anniversary of VJ Day. To commemorate this important milestone we are asking Clubs to hold a golf event either in May, August or, as many do, in November, with donations being sent in to the RBL main bank account after the event. For full details of how to get your Club involved, send me an email.

Obviously, with the coronavirus problems nobody could take part in May and it is proving to be very difficult for most Clubs to take part in August as they struggle to get back to some kind of normal. Meals, dancing (which had been planned by many) and presentations might still be difficult in August.

We are, though, finding that most of the Clubs which normally play in November, around Remembrance, will be able to do so.

For Clubs not able to take part in November we are hoping that you can take part next May (2021), which also happens to be the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion. Just get in touch and I'll do the rest for you.

 

VE-Day+75  Quiz Night

We also have a special VE Day +75 Quiz  that your Club could use - we obviously hope it will raise some funds which you can then send to RBL. Just email for more details (see below). There are also several quizzes on this site - see the side-bar for details.

 

Walsall GC have, over the past few years, planted and tended a small field of poppies in memory of those who gave their lives during bygone conflicts. A fabulous idea.
