RAIN accompanied the solemn mood of this year’s Remembrance Day service at La Siesta church.
Silence befell the congregation at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, to remember all those who lost their lives in the two World Wars and in every conflict since.
The service was attended by Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolon, who emphasised the solemnity of an act of enormous importance to the British community based in Torrevieja, which he praised as an example of integration into the city.
Following the service, Armed Forces personnel, official delegates and councillors from Torrevieja Town Hall and members of the public were invited to lay a wreath or poppy in the Garden of Remembrance.
Each year hundreds attend the service, organised by veterans of the Royal British Legion and the Armed Forces, and this year marked the centenary of the beginning of the First World War.
