Who we are:
The Riders Branch, Legion Scotland formed on Saint Andrews Day, 30 November 2010, in Edinburgh at the Headquarters Royal British Legion Scotland, on Logie Green Road. 
The Riders Branch is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across Scotland and the wider United Kingdom. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who have risked their very lives and those who continue to do so, for our freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.
Our Objectives are:
-  To support Legion Scotland as the leading ex-service Charity in Scotland, promoting remembrance and comradeship and, in partnership with other Scottish Charities, to be responsible for providing welfare, benevolence and War-Pensions: War Pension Appeals Support.”
-  To attend and assist in ceremonies such as wreath-laying on Remembrance Sunday or organising events to mark Veterans Day and military anniversaries therefore reminding the public as to the debt of honour we owe the Fallen.
-  To raise funds for our veterans and their dependents through charitable work and donations to assist in periods of hardship.
-  To show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
-  To attend the funeral services of fallen British Servicemen heroes as invited guests of the family.
We don’t care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, it is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you’re from or what your income is.   The only prerequisite is RESPECT.
To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you.  We honour and support you and we are praying for a safe return home for all.
Our fundamental principles of support (known as our ABC of care) are Assistance, Benevolence and Comradeship.

Common bonds:
We share a common bond by our enthusiasm for motorcycles and previous service in the Armed Forces is not a mandatory requirement but all members will be expected to “buy into” supporting Legion Scotland. The only qualifying criteria is that everyone must adhere to the law of the road and maintain a ”good citizen” approach to membership. We will endeavour to develop a biking culture in the branch and take part in all types of biking including rallies, ride outs, formal events and fund raising. We are embracing our charity “Voices For Veterans” and hope to support ex-service charities throughout Scotland.  The success of the branch will be down to its members and our willingness to take part. The Riders Branch, Legion Scotland is registered as a Scottish Charity, Number 003323.

Members access

We have our own member forum accessed through a link provided through The Royal British Legion Scotland website (www.rblscotland.com) for membership. We must remember that although we are bikers, we are doing so to raise awareness and funds to support our ex-Servicemen and women and their dependents throughout Scotland. Although, we can enjoy ourselves doing it! The Riders Branch will endeavour to help support other Branches of The Legion of Scotland in social events and ceremonial occasions, such as wreath-laying on Remembrance Sunday or organising events to mark Veterans' Day and military anniversaries remind the public as to the debt of honour we owe the Fallen.
