The Royal British Legion Dorset will commemorate its centenary with a county parade in Bournemouth on Saturday 16th October.

The parade, featuring two bands and the members and standards from RBL branches across the county, will be joined by the Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset, the chairmen and leaders of Dorset and BCP Councils and Dorset MPs.

It will also include representatives of all the Armed Services, Cadet Corps and Dorset youth organisations, ex-Services associations and the civilian services.

It will leave Pier Approach at 1.30pm and march via the Lower and Central Gardens to the War Memorial, where wreaths will be laid before walking to the commemoration service at St. Peter’s Church starting at 2.45pm, during which a new Dorset County Standard will be dedicated.

A spokesperson from The Royal British Legion said: “All are welcome to join this once in a hundred years event.”
