A year after Legion Scotland celebrated its 100th anniversary, Easdale branch has now marked its own centenary.

Royal British Legion Scotland’s origins can be traced back to the summer of 1921, when Field Marshal Earl Haig brought together more than 100 existing veteran support organisations. The Easdale branch was founded in 1922 and continues to play an active role in the local community today.

The centenary celebration, attended by members of the branch and the Deputy Lieutenant of Argyll & Bute Jamie Mellor and Mrs Morag Mellor, took place at the Tigh an Truish Inn. Branch Chair Ron Hetherington delivered a speech covering the branch’s long history before toasting Her Majesty The Queen, the branch, and Royal British Legion Scotland.

Also in attendance was the branch’s longest-serving member, Mary Sandilands, who cut the anniversary cake.
