Fulbourn and Teversham Royal British Legion news

click to go to the Royal British Legion HomepageThis year is the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion, which was founded in 1921. We are delighted to announce that it is also the 90th year of our branch, which was formed between July and December 1921.

In Fulbourn the ex-servicemen's association was initially the Comrades of the Great War, and in August of 1Comrades of the Great War badge918 it was reported that a successful dance was held by the Fulbourn Post of Comrades. Between 1918 and 1921 (when the Fulbourn branch of the British Legion was established), all kinds of functions were arranged including childrens' parties, dances and concerts. To mark this special occasion, the branch will be organising a number of events through the year which will be advertised locally and in The Mill.

We are putting on a show called Eyes Front! with Isla St Clair, comprising a range of songs and verse way back from Napoleonic times through both World Wars, which is filling theatres throughout the UK. Tickets are on sale now and cost £10.00; they are available from Twelve on Fulbourn High Street, or email fulbourn_mill@yahoo.com.

Isla is, of course, famous for starring in BBC1's The Generation Game, and has forged a successful career in her own right as a Scottish Folk Singer.

Also, following the success of our tour of the Western Front in April 2010, how about joining the Branch on a four-day guided tour of the Normandy D-Day Landings and inland area? Cost will be £269 per person, to last from 7-10 April. Again, email fulbourn_mill@yahoo.com for full details.
