Membership of the SA Legion
How to become a member
|In Flanders fields the poppies blow/
Between the crosses, row on row.
Once restricted to those who had seen military service, membership of the Legion is now open to all those who have its ideals at heart.
To become a member of the SA Legion please complete the membership form and send it to our address (see contact page) with your remittance. The membership fee is currently R110 per annum, payable in April each year.
On completing the membership form and after paying the first subscription, new members - dependent on their place of residence and being able to attend - will be inducted into the Legion at a brief ceremony during a function for all members. This generally takes place twice each year.At the ‘swearing-in of new members each will receive a back copy of Springbok – the Legion’s national magazine and SITREP – the Cape Town Branch magazine (dependent upon availability) and other Legion souvenirs.
There is a serious misconception that military veterans are seen only as those who served in World War Two. And it is seen by some as an Officers ‘club’. This is totally incorrect.
The thousands of men and women who have served in the armed forces since the world war are all classed as military veterans. The term includes all those who served as National Servicemen, and also former members of the Citizen Force (now known as Reserve Force) and the Commandos. Rank in the SA Legion is irrelevant – all members are Legionnaires.
