The Bermuda Legion (Bermuda Charity 809) looks after the welfare of Bermuda’s Greatest Generation – the heroes who served in the Second World War. The Legion also assists their Widows and provides advocacy and support for their families. We now also support the elderly soldiers who served in The Royal Bermuda Regiment. Our support for War Veterans, serving and former soldiers of The Royal Bermuda Regiment extends into the entire community. We never turn away anyone who comes to us for assistance.
The Bermuda Legion firmly believes that no one should be fearful of growing old, without the support that provides peace of mind and access to adequate quality of life. The Bermuda Legion helps with welfare enquiries, urgent needs, health and safety concerns, benefits advice and home visits, access to legal assistance and caregiving. War veteran benefits can upfront the costs of medical airlifting. We lease one grave in St George’s Churchyard for our veterans, serving and former soldiers of the Royal Bermuda Regiment. Throughout the year we provide a Program of gifts, groceries and home and hospital visits to veterans and widows across the Island. The Legion also provides a series of internationally recognized courses for caregivers for Dementia sufferers.
The Bermuda Legion is dedicated to the Remembrance of men and women who served and, in many cases, gave their lives in both World Wars. We supply wreaths and Signature Bermuda Poppies for Remembrance Day and for Church Services throughout the Island.
