Royal British Legion 100

Collection Issue Date: 26th June 2021

In support of one of our nation's most established and respected charities.

Isle of Man Post Office is delighted to present this stamp issue celebrating 100 years of the Royal British Legion (RBL), one of our nations most established and respected charities. Locally on our Island, the Royal British Legion serves a vital role at the heart of our community, with 10 branches and clubs across the Island.

The Royal British Legion was formed in the aftermath of the First World War to fight for the rights of those who had given so much and come back to so little. Today, it continues to stand with the Armed Forces community and challenge injustices to ensure all those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf get the fair treatment and recognition they deserve.

This collection is dedicated to all service men and women and all those involved with the Royal British Legion.

Issue Information

Throughout its history the Royal British Legion’s work has left a deep-rooted legacy for generations to come and it remains dedicated to its mission of creating better futures for all those who serve with the British Armed Forces. It has evolved and adapted over time, responding to the changing needs of the Armed Forces community and reflecting the modern-day society in which they play an important role. 

The Royal British Legion has always been supported by a network of volunteers, members, fundraisers and partner organisations who share its passion for bringing people together to support, commemorate and celebrate the Armed Forces community. This issue pays tribute to  these people who make the Royal British Legion what it is.

In this, its centenary year, the Royal British Legion is firmly focused on the future and using its 100 years of experience supporting the Armed Forces community to build an organisation fit for the next 100.Perhaps best known for its annual Poppy Appeal and Remembrance services, the Legion is a campaigning organisation that promotes the welfare and interests of current and former members of the British Armed Forces – although service is no longer a membership requirement. In its modern iteration, the Legion has approx. 2,500 branches with more than 235,000 members nationwide.

Locally the Legion has a well-established presence, with 10 branches and clubs across our Island acting as a valuable part of the community, the Douglas branch alone having 1,500+ members. The Royal British Legion plays a vital role to our Island, offering invaluable support to our ex-service personnel and wider community.
