The Royal British Legion (RBL) will be marking its centenary and 100 years of caring for veterans and the armed forces community throughout Dorset this month.
Through its ‘For Valour’ Project, commemorative wreaths will be laid at RBL branches on war memorials across Dorset, with photographs taken as a historical record.
H.M.Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset, Angus Campbell Esq. and leaders of both Dorset and BCP councils will lead the project, alongside who will join RBL’s county president and chairman, in two ceremonies to be held on Wednesday 19th May.
The first will be at the war memorial at Bourne Avenue in Bournemouth at 10.00am , while the second will be laid at the war memorial at South Walks Road in Dorchester at 2.00pm.
The RBL centenary will be further commemorated by events throughout the year, culminating in a county parade and service to be held in Bournemouth in October.
