"Flander's Fields" RBL Paris HQ Gift of HM Ambassador
The Royal British Legion Paris Branch has the distinction of being the very first Branch of the organisation, its articles dating from 14 May 1921 which actually pre-dates the official establishment of the RBL. Unfortunately many of the circumstances of this curious fact are lost in the mists of time - many papers having been lost between 1939 and 1945 (see history)
The organisation was fortunate enough to acquire its premises right in the centre of the city at a time when such a thing was still plausible for a charitable organisation and members thus benefit from use of a highly convenient pied à terre in the centre of Paris. (see Members' facilities)
The Paris branch welcomes members of all nationalities and offers an attractive range of facilities and events for a very moderate subscription.
