Liss RBL Press Release and Information
On Sunday 15th May 1921, a wet and dreary day, four service organisations came together at the Cenotaph in Whitehall to lay wreaths and to mark their amalgamation to form the British Legion. In Liss the local organisation of the Comrades of the Great War became the Liss Branch of the Legion.
The Centenary will be marked at 0900 on Saturday 15th May 2021 by commemoration services at the Cenotaph and nationwide. COVID-19 restrictions still place some limitations on these, but in Liss it is planned to have a wreath laying ceremony at the Liss War Memorial at the same time and in a similar manner to the VE and VJ anniversaries in 2020. Let us hope the weather will be better than that in 1921!
The commemorative sign attached will be placed over the entrance to the RBL Liss Club in Rake Road.
