The Report - The Royal British Legion
Angus Crawford examines the Royal British Legion and asks whether a major restructuring will affect its ability to deliver the help that veterans expect.
The Royal British Legion is one of the UK's most iconic charities. It's known for its annual Poppy Appeal and the help it promises veterans of all ages. But former staff, including decorated officers, claim that a major restructuring will impede the Legion's ability to deliver the help that veterans expect. Angus Crawford talks to veterans, former Legion staff, and the charity's chief executive and asks whether the RBL, founded by First World War veterans, is equipped to face the challenges of the 21st century.
