So far in the first 6 months' of 2022, we have held our busiest period to date with a huge range of events and Comradeship events across Scotland such as Anzac, Silver Poppy, Conference, Scottish American Memorial Day service, Falklands, AFD Flag Raising, AFD, and Founders Day. Local branches across the country held celebrations for the Queen’s Jubilee, and there were even some delayed centenary festivities. 

But what do the next six months have in store? Here are just some of the upcoming happenings for your diary. 

Best Kept War Memorial results 

While the winners of the Best Kept War Memorial competition won’t actually be presented with their prizes until we next meet in-person at the 2023 Annual Conference, they will be notified of their success this autumn. 

New issue of Legion Scotland Today published 

The latest edition of our members magazine will land on your doorstep in mid-October. If you have any branch news you’d like to be included in either the print issue or our monthly newsletter bulletin, get in touch with us by emailing [email protected] 


As the Custodians of Remembrance in Scotland, we help to organise events across the country to perpetuate the memory of those who died in the service of our nation.

This year is no different. 

Throughout October, we’ll be involved in the reopening of several Gardens of Remembrance. This begins on 21 October at Cavell Gardens in Inverness, followed by Edinburgh’s Scott Monument on 24 October and George Square in Glasgow on 25 October

Following these events, the Royal British Legion Scotland Angus, Perthshire and Fife Festival of Remembrance will be held at Caird Hall in Dundee on 5 November

On 11 November, the Armistice Day Service will take place in Princes Street Gardens, and two days later on 13 November, we plan to mark Remembrance Sunday at the Stone of Remembrance in Edinburgh’s City Chambers. Local branches will, of course, also be hosting their own Remembrance events. 

Carol service 

This year’s Christmas carol service will be held at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh on 11 December at 4pm. Tickets will be available via Eventbrite nearer the time.
