Next year is the Centenary of the RBL and a new award will be given out .

Members can be nominated in 5 different catagories :
1. Collaboration.
2. Excellence.
3. Passion.
4. Service.
5. Valuing Our People.

Members can be nominated by each county who can put forward one in each catagory.

These will then go forward to the Area's and the winners will be in the National competition.

The Cups and Shields working group will then choose the winners in each catagory and there will then be a public vote for The Legion Centenary Award Winner.

The County Award Winners will each receive the badge shown below (these will not be available for sale) and the overall winner of the award will get a Gold Membership Badge.


At first glance I thought the Centenary Badge was going to be extemely rare , only five being awarded , but as each county (610) can nominate five members there could possibly be 3050 issued.It will still be a 'limited' edition badge and years from now collectors (like me) will be desperately seeking them out .
