Remembrance Sunday in Gibraltar

(Official Notice) "Her Majesty The Queen has approved that Sunday November 13th be observed as Remembrance Sunday. This year, as was the case last year, the Ceremony of Remembrance is to be held at the British War Memorial on Line Wall Road, opposite City Hall, at noon. The Ceremony is organised by the Government. The Governor, in his capacity as representative of the Queen of Gibraltar, will lead the service. On his arrival he will read the Bidding. This is followed by the observance of the Two Minutes silence, the beginning and end of which is signalled by a saluting gun. The Last Post will be sounded, after which wreaths are laid, and an inter-denominational service held. The Ceremony concludes with the sounding of Reveille and the singing of the National Anthem.Medals and decorations may be worn with civilian dress by all those entitled to do so. Relatives of deceased servicemen and servicewomen may also wear their decorations. Persons or Organisations, who have pre-ordered the official wreaths from Solomon Levy, may collect them from No 6 Convent Place from Tuesday 8th to Thursday 10th November from 10:00am until noon, on payment of £25. Cheques should be made payable to The Gibraltar Poppy Day Appeal Fund."
