About Us


Dunbar & District Branch is a registered charity offering Comradeship, Welfare and Remembrance for the ex-service community and their dependants, those still serving and all those in the area who support the charitable aims and objectives of Legion Scotland.

We also operate a Social Club which generates income for the Branch to help us fulfil our charitable purpose.

Comradeship is a vital part of the identity of Legion Scotland, it is just one of the ways we can make a positive difference to the wellbeing of veterans and the wider Dunbar & District community.

Comradeship is extending friendship, and being inclusive, to ensure people feel they belong and are welcome, engaged, and connected. It is about valuing all individuals, giving equal access and opportunity to all and removing discrimination and other barriers to involvement.

Armed Forces Community – We hold regular Armed Forces Comradeship events. If you enjoy a bit of inter-forces banter and have a few ‘war stories’ to tell, you (plus partner) would be most welcome to attend.

We also have a Branch Standard Bearer and are recruiting for an Escort to the Colour squad. If you can still march, why not volunteer?

Our Poppy Collection Team Leader Sharon Kaszuba (ex-Royal Navy) is recruiting team players for her 2024 fund raising campaign. Can you offer some time to help?

HOME ON LEAVE from the Armed Forces? – Claim a FREE game of pool and a pint if you are home on leave and enjoy the benefits of temporary membership. You will need to show your ID card to a member of the social club bar staff.

Local Community – We support various Sub-Groups who provide a focus point for members of the community to get together for a specific purpose:

Dunbar Royal British Legion Pipe Band
Dunbar Royal British Legion Powerlifters Club
Dunbar Royal British Legion Pool Team
Dunbar Royal British Legion Bingo Club

We have the capacity to host more sub-groups. If you would like us to consider supporting your group, please get in touch here.


Specialist Support – Legion Scotland works with a large number of organisations who provide a wide range of specialist support for members of the Armed Forces Community, including a Pensions and Advocacy Service plus access to advisors available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

Get Well Soon Message – To remind members that the Legion family is thinking about them when they are in hospital or recuperating from illness, we will send a Get Well Soon card and a gift voucher. Please let us know if your friend or family member is ill and we will send the card and voucher to the address on our membership list.

Condolence Cards – Please let us know if a member passes away so we may honour them with a condolence card.

Funerals – If the family wishes the attendance of a Legion Standard Bearer at a funeral, please advise the Branch.

For help with any of the above, please email our Welfare Officer through our Contact Us page.


Legion Scotland are the custodians of Remembrance in Scotland.
Remembrance for those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation regardless of age or conflict, remains a top priority for Legion Scotland.

A Remembrance Sunday service is held on the Sunday closest to 11th November.
Typically, we will have a parade led by the Dunbar British Legion Pipe Band, Afterwards, all attendees are welcome to retire to the Social Club for refreshments and to socialise.
Additionally, we commemorate Armistice Day each 11th November at 11am, by having a remembrance event at the War Memorial adjacent to Marine Rd, Dunbar, EH42 1AR.
These events are merged in to one, when the 11th November is also a Sunday.

Please feel free to join us and pay your respects.

We can supply remembrance wreaths at cost. For more information please contact us here

Dunbar & District Branch also helps maintain local war memorials.

Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day is 26th June every year.

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving personnel to Service families, veterans and cadets.

We plan to hold an event each year to show solidarity with our military colleagues still in uniform.
