Contributed - VE DAY and VJ DAY - 65th ANNIVERSARY

This year, the Royal British Legion in the UK will be holding a series of events and services to commemorate the 65th Anniversary of VE and VJ Day.

On Wednesday the 19th May, as part of these celebrations the Royal British Legion in Portugal will hold a short service on the outside veranda at the Hotel Garbe commencing at 11.30am, followed by the RBL monthly lunch in the restaurant to which everyone is invited - please confirm your arrangements with the hotel reception.

Father Haynes, the RBL Algarve Chaplain, and Father Bob Bates will take this service and the Standard will be paraded. The service will last 20-30 minutes, and will remember not only how our Freedom was fought and won, but will also look forward to the hope of Peace in the lands where our troops are still fighting.
