2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. The British Embassy and the Gambia Legion invite the general public to a Remembrance Day event on Tuesday the 11th November starting at 10:45am at The Commonwealth War Graves, Karaiba Avenue, Fajara.
The Gambia Legion was founded by veterans of the First World War, who like all Legions, adopted the poppy as their symbol of Remembrance and hope. Today the Legion is at the forefront of Centenary commemorations. As we come together in Remembrance of events a century ago, we are reminded of the important work the Gambia Legion continues to provide.
To support this cause, poppies can be brought via a donation from the following locations: British Embassy Consular Reception, Calypso Bar and Restaurant, Coco Ocean Hotel, Fajara Club, Gambia Experience, Gaya Art Cafe, Kairaba Hotel, MRC, Ngala Lodge, Marouns Supermarket, Rotary Club of Banjul, Samba’s Bar and Restaurant and the Senegambia Hotel.
