The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion (RBL) is a British charity which was founded in 1921; originally it was set up to assist those who had fought for their country during the First World War.

Since that time there have been many major conflicts where British troops have been, and still are, being called upon to protect those in dangerous troubled areas. The RBL supports all service men, women and their families, past and present.

The Mojacar Branch of The RBL in Spain was founded in January 1998 and is one of the oldest branches in Spain. The branch meets twice a month, and holds many events during the year to help raise money for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. At the moment we are making plans to celebrate our 20th Anniversary next year. All money raised by The RBL in Spain Poppy Appeal is used for those Beneficiaries resident in Spain. Their aim is to provide Welfare to those who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces in times of need. They also support many other charities who give aid and assistance to ex service personnel and their families.

You do not have to be a member of The RBL to qualify for Assistance, but you must have received at least 7 days’ pay as a Regular, Reserve or Auxiliary member of the Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force and be aged 16 or over. This includes families of the beneficiary. If you need any help please contact Pam Twissel Cross on
