Mission Statement.
To be the No1 provider of Welfare, Comradeship, Representation and Rememberance for the Armed Forces Community and Stand Shoulder to Shoulder with all who serve.

About the Branch.
The Stoke Gabriel Branch of the Royal British Legion organises the annual November Poppy Appeal with members doing house to house collections. We usually raise between £2-£3000 which goes for the benefit of our Armed Forces and their families past and present. We are always on the lookout for more collectors.

Together with the Vicar and the Uniform Organisations we arrange the Royal British Legion Service of Remembrance in the church which is held on Remembrance Sunday at 3pm.

On Armistice Day November 11th at 11.00 am we have a 2 minute silence at the War Memorial with the playing of the Last Post and Reveille with the Branch Standard present.

We do not have any facility in the village but our Committee meets once a month to discuss future events and pass on correspondence from both our Devon & National Branch.

At present (June 2020) due to ill health and shortage of people we have been unable to hold any events as in the past we have had Social Events such as a Bingo Night, Coffee Morning and a Boat Trip to Dartmouth. We hope to resume some of these events in the future if we are able to attract new members
