THE CATSHILL and Lickey End communities held a short wreath-laying ceremony today to commemorate the centenary of the Royal British Legion.
The socially-distanced service was organised by the Catshill and Lickey End Branch of the RBL.
The poignant event took place at 10am at the war memorial on the corner of Meadow Road and Stourbridge Road.
Laying wreaths were Daren Lacey, the Catshill and Lickey End RBL Branch Chairman, Bernard McEldowney Chairman of the Catshill and North Marlbrook Parish Council, Coun Jo-Anne Till, for Bromsgrove District Council and Coun Shirley Webb for Worcestershire County Council.
The British Legion was formed on May 15, 1921, and brought together four national organisations of ex-Servicemen which had been established after the end of First World War.
Among them were the National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers, the British National Federation of Discharged and Demobilised Sailors and Soldiers, The Comrades of The Great War and The Officers’ Association.
In the last 100 years it has helped millions of former servicemen and women and their families.
