The Newent and District branch of the Royal British legion is a small branch and we are raising funds to send our standard bearer and one other member to represent the branch at the Great Pilgrimage 90.
In the biggest membership event in its history, The Royal British Legion is recreating its 1928 pilgrimage to World War One battlefields.
A decade after the end of WW1, veterans and war widows visited the battlefields of the Somme and Ypres before marching to the Menin Gate in Ypres on 8 August 1928.
Exactly 90 years later on 8 August 2018, thousands of Legion members will carry their standards along the same route to the Menin Gate, to commemorate the last 100 days of WW1 and represent an entire generation that served while defending their country.
Any contrubution, no matter how small will be gratefully received.
