Whirlpools World

ARMISTICE Day and Remembrance Sunday was observed with services along the northern Costa Blanca on Saturday and Sunday, marking the end of the Great War on 11th November, 1918.

Church of England clergy from the Costa Blanca Anglican chaplaincy conducted 10 service, four with, or on behalf of, the Royal British Legion; the charity supporting men and women of the Armed Forces, veterans, and their families – and also keeping memories of the sacrifice of the fallen alive.

And from Gandia to El Campello, the acts of remembrance took place on Saturday 11th – Armistice Day – and on Remembrance Sunday.

Wreaths were laid by representatives of the various charities and service organisations.

In general, services followed the traditional and comforting format used in acts of remembrance around the world, but with additions to allow a local flavour to participate.
