At the Hondon Valley Branch Remembrance Service on llth November, we were honoured to have Captain Lemkes, RN, Defence Attaché together with Sgt Michelle Kadshaw RAF, Assistant to the Defence Attaché from the British Embassy in Madrid in attendance.
They are pictured here with Chris Wyatt, Branch Chairman, and Nigel Hails, Chairman of District North.
The Service, was lead by the Branch Padre Reverend Canon Terence Sampson and included music from the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums and the Phoenix Concert Band.
A local Spanish choir sang several songs, one of which they had written for the Service. Branch member Tony Brown read a self penned poem entitled….. to end all wars.
It was a delightful service with many thought provoking elements and extra emphasis given to the beginning of WW1 l00 years ago. The little Aula del Cultura in Hondón de las Nieves was full of members and friends both English and Spanish from around the area.
