Registration of the
Limbless Ex-Servicemen's Association

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).
