British Legion presentation to Ralph Tulley

Following the First World War, some 250 men returned to civilian life in the four villages of the Slaugham Parish and the village of Staplefield, and a similar number after the Second World War. To assist in their return, Ralph Tulley devoted a great deal of his time and energy to their service. In recognition of this work, which he undertook in addition to his other duties in the villages, the Handcross and District branch of the British Legion conferred on him the honour of presenting him with the Gold Badge of the Legion.
The presentation, which was a complete surprise to Mr Tulley pictured on the right, was made by Colonel J. Raymond Warren O.B.E., M.C. at the annual Legion dinner in the Parish Hall.
