The Royal British Legion Spain South has organised several Remembrance Day services along the Costa del Sol this weekend. Ex-military personnel and the families and friends of those who served will participate in parades and services in Malaga and Fuengirola, while smaller scale services will be held at different locations along the coast.
On Sunday 10 November a Remembrance Service will take place at St George's Church in the English Cemetery in Malaga. Organised by the Royal Air Forces Association Costa del Sol and the Torremolinos branch of the RBL, the service will be followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at the Commonwealth War Graves.
Several branches of the RBL will come together in the Salon Varietés Theatre in Fuengirola on Sunday. The 1st Fuengirola Scout Group will take part in the opening parade, along with senior members and standards from the Mijas Costa, and Marbella branches of the RBL.
The Coín branch of the RBL will hold its Armistice Day ceremony in the Cemetery Chapel in Coín (Monday). As in previous years, the mayor of Coin, Fernando Fernández, and the Guardia Civil captain Bernabé Moya Ortiz will lay wreaths.
The Mollina branch of the RBL will hold a service and parade in the Parque La Viña in Mollina at 11 am on Monday 11 November. Several members of the branch will also participate in the Governor's Parade in Gibraltar on Sunday.
