Thought I'd bump this remember you do not need to be a British legion member to apply for a holiday you just need to have served in the armed forces also war widows and widowers can also apply just call the number 08457 725 725 and they will direct you to your local British Legion office who will give/send you more details etc


Must emphasize it is a free holiday your local British Legion local office will confirm this when you ring they will also pay for your travel costs should you need it please share this with all organisations or people you feel may benefit


Sadly not anymore,Royal British Legion is changing whats its funding and break centres don't fall into that anymore. I am unaware of any consultation with veterans and all the Break centres were informed by non veteran employees of the closures. Many don't support the Poppy Appeal already due to lack of support from the RBL, this will put a few more off I reckon.
The Legion has lost its way.
A bureaucratic organisation now.
Have a look at the website - looks designed to make it actually difficult for you to contact them.
I am a third generation volunteer, and have lost faith in them.
Combat Stress has my support now.
