An Act of Remembrance will take place at the Gibraltar War Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in the UK on 13th October, the first anniversary of its unveiling.
The ceremony will be led by Joe Brugada, on behalf of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar. Together with Anselmo Torres, Joe Brugada had the original idea for the Memorial, as well as being responsible for designing and overseeing the project.
The event will be attended by 30 Members of the Royal British Legion (RBL) from UK branches, with an additional 16 members from the Royal Welsh Branch of the RBL and a number of the Friends of Gibraltar Society led by Commodore Richard Lord CBE.
Mrs Sarah Cohen, a great niece of one of those commemorated on it, will also attend the ceremony.
Wreaths will be laid on behalf of HMG and People of Gibraltar, Royal British Region Gibraltar and Welsh Branches, Friends of Gibraltar and the Armed Forces Jewish Community.
