Did You Know

Some interesting and quirky facts about Britain in general and Great Yarmouth in particular. Many are First and Second World War related but not all.

Anyone can join the Royal British Legion

Did you know that you do not need to have been a member of the armed services to join the Royal British Legion?

Our Deputy Poppy Appeal Organizer, Linda Hayter, is one of the most hard working members of the Great Yarmouth branch of the Royal British Legion, but Linda has never been in the armed services. She was inspired to join some years ago by her aunt and uncle, Irene and Owen Davis. They are pictured below at the memorial in Newcastle on Armed Forces Day 2015. Also in the picture is Linda's cousin Jacquie, a standard bearer for the Royal British Legion. Linda's aunt and uncle have been honoured recently with a Northumberland Local Heroes award in recognition of their 35 years as active members and volunteers of the Prudhoe branch of the Royal British Legion.

Linda's family

The Great Yarmouth branch needs more active members like Linda, not just to help with the annual two weeks of the Poppy Appeal but to support and attend events throughout the year. We need to show that we care because the number of former service men and women from all three services - navy, army and air force - who need the Royal British Legion's care is not diminishing. Yes, a lot of the money raised goes to the elderly, but the Legion's help extends to all who have served from the Second World War to the present day and that includes the young men and women deployed in Afghanistan. Please come and join us.
