Centenary Armistice Service

Members of Calpe Bowls Club paused their Sunday morning roll-up just before 11:00am in preparation for the Centenary Remembrance Service.

The service started with Andrea De Kunst playing the last post on her althorn, which was followed by a two minute silence allowing time for reflecting on all those who lost their lives in World War One and all other wars.

Club president Alan Edwards then read the poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae which was followed by Julien, one of our Belgium friends reading a verse for all the Belgium people in attendance.

Ted Campbell and a Belgian representative then carried a wreath and laid it between the flags of the United Kingdom and Belgium.
