A plaque to the British Battalion’s last stand near Corbera d’Ebre in September 1938 was unveiled on 24 September 2013 by family members of those who took part in the fighting.

A slideshow of photos of the event can be viewed here:

The plaque stands next to the old church of Corbera d‘Ebre, which was ruined during the Battle of the Ebro and has been preserved as a memorial.
