The annual international Battle of Jarama commemoration will take place on Saturday 17 February 2018.

 

The IBMT contingent will be organised by Trustees Pauline Fraser and Manuel Moreno.

 

The commemoration is hosted by the AABI Spanish International Brigades friendship group and attracts visitors from International Brigade associations from around the world as well as many Spanish supporters.

 

Details of the 2018 event have yet to be announced, but there is usually a themed hike across the battlefield, followed by a late lunch in a nearby restaurant. The hike s over rough terrain and sensible footwear and outdoor clothing are essential.

 

As part of the weekend of activities, a trip to the memorial to the Scottish volunteers in nearby Tarancón has also always been arranged in recent years.
