The first anniversary of the unveiling of the Gibraltar Memorial was held last month in an ‘Act of Remembrance’ at the National Memorial Arboretum in the UK.

The war memorial was dedicated by the Government and People of Gibraltar to the memory of those Gibraltarians who served in the Armed Forces and died in armed conflict during both World Wars.

The ceremony was led by Joe Brugada, who had the original idea for the memorial together with Anselmo Torres, is responsible for the design and overseeing the project.

The event was 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, also attended the ceremony.

Wreaths were laid on behalf of the People of Gibraltar, Royal British Region Gibraltar and Welsh Branches, Friends of Gibraltar and the Armed Forces Jewish Community.
