Curphey Home, Newport, Manchester


The Jamaica Legion, an affiliate of the British Commonwealth Ex-Services League, was established in 1949. Today, across Jamaica, hundreds of ex-servicemen and women continue to receive assistance from the Legion. The Headquarters of the Jamaica Legion is at Curphey Place, Kingston, on lands (part of Up Park Camp) obtained through the Ministry of Defence.  In South Manchester, the Legion maintains the CURPHEY HOME for ex-servicemen. It was named after the late Colonel Sir Aldington Curphey, one of the founders of the Jamaica Legion and the first four ex-servicemen moved in to the home on 1 January 1957.
