The Royal British Legion (RBL) marks its centenary this year. On 23 August 2021 at 11am in St Mary’s church, Rye, Sussex RBL will hold an event to start a pan-Sussex torch relay to mark the 100 years of RBL service.
Rye RBL will host the event, which will involve the dedication and lighting of a torch before it is dispatched on a route which will take it to many RBL Branches across Sussex. The president of Rye RBL, will take charge of the torch in St Mary’s and hand it a Rye Sea Cadet, to represent the rededication and passing of the ideals of the RBL and the pledge of Remembrance, as it starts its journey across Sussex.
