Remembered Today:

14 May 1921 British Legion formed. 15 May 1921: wreaths at Cenotaph by the 4 organisations that merged.

Hi there

This is a long shot but if I don't ask, I will not know:  does anyone have any photographs relating the merger of the four organisations (The National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers; The British National Federation of Discharged and Demobilized Sailors and Soldiers; The Comrades of The Great War; The Officers' Association) that merged to become the British Legion on 14 May 1921.  Delegates met on that date at the Queen's Hall, Langham Place.  Apparently, on 15 May, 4 representatives pledged the unification by laying wreaths at the Cenotaph.  Asking on behalf of another.  If someone comes up trumps, I can explain the quest further.  Many thanks in anticipation.  Heather
