We do our part to be stewards of history, and our heritage…

 Founded in 1950, with its Hall named after a local serviceman, Orville Hand, who gave his life for God, his country and its Allies, the Bradford Legion joined the ultimately over 1400 Branches across Canada, to do its part to preserve the memory of our heritage, local and beyond.

Since 1926, the Royal Canadian Legion has remained committed to advocating for those who serve and for all Veterans and their families including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP members.

As the “Keepers of Remembrance”, Ontario Command publishes an annual Military Service Recognition Book to identify and recognize many of our Veterans in Ontario, who have either served or are still serving in our Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or Allied Forces.

Everyone– including Veterans, relatives or friends alike– is welcome to share and submit a story, a photo, perhaps even a copy of an artefact of a Veteran. All are invited to drop off or send your stories and content, along with the completion of the form below, printed or updated as a pdf document, to your Legion Branch as soon as possible.

The Book completion date is May 15th 2021, and as we generally accept submissions year-round, the cut off point may even be earlier if we receive enough submissions sooner to fill the Military Service Recognition Book.

Please also visit your local Legion Branch to obtain more information regarding the Keepers of Remembrance program. and more importantly, to submit a story and photo .

Your community Legion Branch looks forward to sharing, celebrating, and honouring the stories of your friends and loved ones.

Many thanks to those who have already submitted.
