This page shows some of the events we have been involved in down the years. Many of our events have been aimed at fundraising but by no means all. Should you like to join us and participate in a worthwhile cause our meetings are open to all.

Blessing of Crosses - Tuesday 3rd November 2009

The Blessing of Crosses ceremony took place today at the war memorial in St Georges Park, Great Yarmouth at 11:00am. After the two minutes silence to remember those lost, Michael Ellis the President of the Great Yarmouth RBL recited an extract from Laurence Binyon's war poem 'For The Fallen'.

Blessing Of Crosses Tue 3rd Nov 2009

The Rev Irene Knowles led the service in blessing the crosses inscribed with the names of the deceased which were placed in a roped off area itself the shape of a cross.

Tony Smith, the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, during his address, paid homage to all those people who had given service to the county. He went on to pay special tribute to those men and women presently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also mentioned the role the Royal British Legion will no doubt play helping soldiers returning from these two war zones, live with their experiences and memories.
