The Group Standard when paraded is the senior standard on parade for a Group parade. Like the County Standard its meaning is simple, that the Group Chairman is on the parade and that it cannot be paraded for any other occasion, except a County parade where it is subservient to the County Standard which means that the County Chairman is on parade as well as the Group Chairman.
Branches are the lifeline of the Legion and the volunteers that run them work tirelessly to raise funds and provide welfare support whilst offering a social focus for their members to meet. They also play a key role in the recruiting and retention of members from within their local community’s and help raise the profile of the RBL at parades and public events.
Within North Staffordshire we have a large network of Branches. A full listing of Branches can be found on our Branch Locator page and where regular meetings are held. Anyone requiring details of these Branches please contact the County Office or the particular Branch Secretary where listed.
Throughout the County there are 31 Royal British Legion Clubs.
The Branches are divided into 4 Groups, based on Local Authority boundaries, who meet regularly throughout the year to exchange ideas and socialise.
