Since 1921 when the British Legion was formed, men and women have been proud to be members of this Association, and they have taken part in parades and ceremonies in many towns and village. A selection of photo’s from around the Mansfield area reveal some of the people and events.
In 1971 when the British Legion was granted “Royal” status a floral Legion Crest was on display in Titchfield Park, Mansfield – see one of the photographs below. It would have been lovely to see this in colour.
The Royal British Legion web site, www.britishlegion.org.uk gives an insight into the history of the Legion.
