Awarded to a Member who has given at least 10 years meritorious and conspicuous service to the objects of the Legion as defined by the Royal Charter and who holds the lesser National award of Gold Badge. The recipient retains his full membership rights without payment of subscriptions for the rest of his natural life. The fact that we applied for a "Gold Badge" for Horace was not lost on the National Chairman he simply decided that the award of Life Membership was more appropriate. Thus, even though Horace does not hold a Gold Badge award it was decided, at the top level in the Legion that he should be given the superior award of "National Life Membership"
