Hyde Name Origins.

Royal British Legion (Hyde Branch)

Photobucket

The lady in the middle front row carrying the flag was my Grandmother Sarah Wigley.... I believe she was marching with the Royal British Legion Hyde Branch, which as recently been mentioned in the local papers. 


"The Royal British Legion safeguards the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. They are one of the UK's largest membership organisations and recognised as custodians of Remembrance. They also run the annual Poppy Appeal."
