Military Wives and Girlfriends Group

What is the group and who is it for?

The Military Wives and Girlfriends Group is a membership group which has been set up specifically for the wives, girlfriends and partners of Army, Navy and Air Force personnel.

By joining the Military Wives and Girlfriends Group rather than a local branch, you are able retain your membership to the group rather than transfer it each time you’re posted abroad or relocated within the country.

You’ll also be part of a large community of like-minded women - all in the same position as you, each one having to deal with similar demands and complications that military life entails. It’s a great way to meet other military wives and girlfriends in your local area, share your opinions and offer your support to one another.

If there are ten or more members in the same area, base or garrison, then you are free to form your own small branch which will be run by whoever wishes to take on the task.

For more information, please visit the Military Wives and Girlfriends Group Facebook page.

What you’ll get for your membership

On becoming a member you’ll receive a Women’s Section membership card.

Your membership gives you the opportunity to attend the Women's Section Annual Meeting and the RBL Annual Conference - events which brings together branch delegates from all over the country to review the work of the organisation and vote on the resolutions that form the backbone of Women’s Section policy and welfare. It's also a great chance to get to know each other.

You’ll also have the chance to apply for tickets to the Legion’s most sought after event, the annual Festival of Remembrance.

Other opportunities include taking part in local/national fundraising events (including the November Poppy Appeal), training and qualifying as a Standard Bearer, Parade Marshal or Caseworker, and developing news skills to take on Branch and County Committee positions.
