For the WW1 Centenary the RBL brought out a set of postcards (pic 1) depicting various groups from that era. The postcards were made to appear old/faded as if they were the genuine article but with the RBL logo etc on the rear.

Now , someone is offering 1 card for sale on eBay with a starting price of ....


......... 795.00 !

Breathtakingly unbelievable what some people will do to try to exploit others.

Default British Legion Badges

Sorting through BL/RBL badges and considering making up a couple of 'basic' frames. Put together a group of British Legion ones to get an idea how it would look.

Picked up a British Legion magazine from March 1928 , it is an "Earl Haig Memorial Number". Lots of articles , tributes and photos about his life and works.

Scanned an advert that may be of interest to other 'Legion' collectors.
