|Amended registration sheet for the Limbless
Ex-Servicemen's Association in Brighton, July 1926.
Under the terms of the 1916 War Charities Act, many voluntary organisations
were set up to support members of the British armed forces. The Limbless
Ex-Servicemen's Association, which was founded in Brighton in April
1926, was one of many post-war charities that supported the interests
of British servicemen who had lost limbs during the conflict. Its
wide-ranging aims encompassed the social ('social intercourse and
comradeship'), the scientific (lectures on artificial limbs) and the
practical (advice on pensions).
