Motion text

That this House notes the 100th birthday of the Royal British Legion established on 15 May 1921; recognises that the purpose in bringing together four national organisations of ex-servicemen was to care for people who had suffered as a result of service in the armed forces during the war; highlights the incredible work that is carried out to this day in providing support to all who serve in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and by extension to their families; further highlights the monumental work carried out in the annual act of remembrance and the education of children and young people to ensure that each generation understands the cost of freedom; and reaffirms the promise so respectfully and lovingly outlined by the Royal British Legion each year: we will remember them.
