The chairman of the Abbots Langley branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) is appealing to all veterans living in the village and Kings Langley to get in touch.

With the anniversary of the end of the First World War later this year, Liz Burns said she wants to make sure veterans from the two villages are included in the events that are planned.

Mrs Burns explained: “If you know anyone living near you or a relative living further away please contact me with their details. There are so many events taking place this year due to all the 100 year celebrations, events by the TRBL, RAF & Back to the Front groups in both villages and we would love to ensure all our veterans are included.”

As well as the First World War commemorations, Mrs Burns can also help ensure veterans are receiving priority medical treatment they are entitled to.

The Royal British Legion meets on the 1st Monday of the month at the Working Mens Club in Trowley Rise Abbots Langley. All are welcome to attend and you do not have to have served to come to the meetings.

Mrs Burns added: “We have a Veterans Lunch in June as well as we are hoping to have a large representation in this year’s Carnival procession as well as our two usual stalls at the Carnival at Manor House grounds on June 9 where again we can help you with advice and problems.”
