He has played a prominent role at parades and services commemorating those who have fallen during the First and Second World Wars, and spearheaded the local poppy appeal to raise thousands of pounds.
But after a decade at the helm of the St Albans branch of the Royal British Legion, chairman Don Dell is stepping down.
Don told the Herts Advertiser that he had recently decided to stand down from office to concentrate on other pursuits.
He and local volunteers raised £71,000 during last year’s poppy appeal.
Members of the branch committee have thanked Don for all his hard work and dedication to the Legion over the years.
