The international community came together in the English Cemetery in Malaga on Sunday morning for Remembrance Day, commemorating 100 years since the end of World War I.
After a service at St George's, poppy wreaths were laid on the Commonwealth War graves. Among those laying wreaths were the Consular representatives of Canada, the UK, France, the USA and Germany.
The event was organised by the Royal Air Forces Association Costa del Sol, whose representatives also laid wreaths, along with the Royal British Legion and the English Cemetery Foundation among others.
Meanwhile the Salon Varietés theatre in Fuengirola was packed for the Remembrance Sunday ceremony organised by the Mijas Costa branch of the Royal British Legion.
Two flag bearers headed the opening parade, followed by members of the RBL and the 1st Fuengirola Scout group.
The president of the RBL Spain South district, Neil Toplis, led the ceremony, which included the playing of The Last Post and a two-minute silence.
Wreaths were laid at the foot of the stage by Mijas Costa RBL chairman, Ruth Mokler, and representatives of the Scouts.
During his address, Toplis spoke of the significance of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance.
There are no survivors left of the First World War, he said, so keeping the memory of the fallen alive is "down to us".
Fuengirola branch reopens
The president also stressed that his aim was to make sure the Royal British Legion expands in southern Spain. The Fuengirola branch, he explained, will reopen on 30 November at 8pm in Churchill's Bar, Los Boliches.
Meetings will be held in the evenings to attract people whose commitments prevent them from attending the morning meetings of the other branches on the Costa del Sol.
