Join the RBL


RBL Standard

You don’t have to have served in the Armed Forces to become a member of The Royal British Legion.

Membership is open to everyone who shares the values of the Legion to support the Armed Forces community.

During the online application process, you may be asked for the number of the Branch that you would like to join — our Branch number is 4041.

Alternatively, download a hard copy of the RBL Membership Application form which, when completed, can be posted direct to the address at the bottom of the form.

If you need any help with joining you may phone +44 207 191 1091 from Monday to Sunday, 8am - 8pm, excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Unfortunately it’s a full rate call to the UK. Or email membershipservices@britishlegion.org.uk.
