40s: After the war - The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion did and still does an ace job of providing financial, social and emotional support for the millions who served or continue to serve Britain in the armed forces. The Rio Branch of the Legion successfully raises funds to send to the UK and to support returned volunteers, ex-servicemen and their families in Rio, and for many years hosted one of Rio’s most elegant functions, the Poppy Ball, each November.
