The Mark British Legion exists essentially to ensure that its Standard can be paraded on Remembrance Sunday. If they are laid up, they cannot then be paraded.  

 

It is with regret that Mark British Legion must report the passing of its late Vice Chair and Treasurer. Tony Curtice was born in Plymouth and served as a RAF National Serviceman in the early 1950s, mainly at RAF Scampton. He then pursued a career in banking. He leaves his widow, Marjorie, and two children, Mark and Jo.  David Price remembers Tony was one of those who collected empty bottles from pubs, which were then sold to a firm in Bridgwater. This was a major source of Mark British Legion funding.
