This image was taken on the return journey to a visit of the Royal British Legion, where I attend a monthly group meeting for sufferers of Combat Stress or (PTSD). It shows Aylesford Bride which crossing the River Medway into Ayesford Village, and onto the Royal British Legion Village
Located to the South of Aylesford, on the A20 London Road. The Royal British Legion Village was founded after the First World War to help injured soldiers on discharge from the nearby Preston Hall hospital. It was first the centre of a small farming community known as The Preston Hall Colony.
When The British Legion was founded in 1921, it became one of the first branches and, by 1925, was known as Royal British Legion Village.

A thriving community has since developed, providing nursing homes, sheltered housing and independent living units, as well as employment and social activities, helping all disabled veterans living in, or moving to, the area.

In 1972 the Poppy Appeal headquarters moved to the village, which now forms one of the main centres of Legion life and activities. An industrial complex in the village houses Royal British Legion industries, including the manufacture of road and public signs used throughout the UK.
