The British Legion Women's Section has been a part of the British Legion since 1921, carrying out welfare and support for the wives of serving and ex-serving personal after the 1st World War. It is the only body of women organised for this purpose. It got its Royal statuses in 1971, which now give us the title of The Royal British Legion Women's Section. It then grew to support families of serving and ex-service personal and raise funds for widows schemes, president award and the poppy appeal. It is to safeguard and transmit the posterity and principles of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy for which our kinsmen fought and died; to promote loyalty to the Crown, the State,and the Nation, as well as unity amongst all classes; to secure Peace and Goodwill, to make Right the master of Might, and to consecrate our comradeship by devotion to mutual service and helpfulness. Unfortunately this is now being taken away from us by the board of trustees and it being the Centenary of The Great War, comes as an added blow. We the Women of the Royal British Legion Women's Section would ask you to support our campaign in overturning the decision made without our consent, communication or forewarning.
