WITH its long military background, Gibraltar saw a number of official observations of remembrance, firstly with a laying of wreaths in the lobby of the Parliament building at 11am on Friday November 11 in memory of those Gibraltarians who died in the two world wars.
Those laying wreaths included the Governor, Chief Minister, leader of the opposition, religious leaders, mayor of Gibraltar and the local representative of the Royal British Legion.
Two more ceremonies took place on Remembrance Sunday, November 13 when representatives of all of the armed forces including the Governor and local dignitaries were present at the British War Memorial to observe two minutes silence, take part in an inter-denominational service and lay wreaths.
Following that ceremony, wreaths were also laid at the American War Memorial.
