Re-Enactment of The Past:-

Re-Enactment Society - Gibraltar

The Ceremony of the Keys is performed once a year by the Royal Gibraltar Regiment and re-enacted every Saturday morning at midday by the Gibraltar Re-enactment Association. Since the capture of the Rock in 1704, the Keys of Gibraltar have symbolised the possession of the Fortress by Great Britain.

Founded in 2002, the Association celebrates and promotes Gibraltar's military history. The President of the Gibraltar Re-enactment Association Joseph Rodriguez, accompanied by Secretary Mr M Infante, presented the medallion to Minister Cortes in recognition of the support of the Ministry of Culture for the Association throughout its history.

Glimpse of The Future:-

The ONLY Key to Gibraltar's future is on The Flag - As a "Sign", of Gibraltar's renewed commitment to keeping The Covenant, when it makes that very serious commitment, the castle, on the flag, will have to be re-coloured back to its original blue (to demonstrate that the People agree that God and not Satan should rule Heaven).

Re-enactment Association in Changing of the Guard - How about they perform a ceremony, handing over the keys to the Real Governor of Gibraltar?

With or without their support or recognition - Christ HOLDS THE KEY to Gibraltar's Bright Future.

Minute 4:55 - "For the British, control of the Mediterranean rest literally on a rock: Gibraltar, guardian of the narrow strait that leads from the Atlantic to the sea in which serves as a moot around Hitler's southern flank..."

1952 Documentary Television Series about naval warfare during World War II and the warfare industry. There are 26 1/2 hour segments. The Series won an Emmy award in 1954 as "Best Public Affairs Program". This series played an important role in establishing historic "compilation" documentaries as a distinct genre. Malta, the central access point to various locations in the Mediterranean Sea is a key island possessed by the U.K. but also desired by the Germans and Italians. Malta was therefore subjected to 'round the clock bombing so as to garner it;s capitulation.Malta survives 1774 bombardments. With :gibraltar: Gibraltar also being the property of the U.K., every means must be taken to control entry into the Mediterranean Sea.

​'The Awakening' immersive audio & visual experience now available to view at St Michael's Cave

You may already know that the light-show in St. Michael's Cave is called "The Awakening" - Great title.

What you'll find interesting from the above report is this quote from Christian Wright, Wright Tech Media, who was referring to the new feature - an appearance of an angel, using the formation of the cave and the newly installed lights, "(the formation) was discovered by accident, and just almost felt like a bit of a sign, excuse the religious pun, but it was almost like St. Michael finally was found in the cave..."

The "last colony" in Europe? | Growing up in Gibraltar

At the Southern tip of the Spanish peninsula is a piece of land measuring under 7 km2, whose GDP per capita is one of the highest in the world: it's Gibraltar.

Gibraltar is one of Britain's overseas territories, and according to its citizens, it's happy to be one. Commuting to Spain for groceries and restaurants, welcoming thousands of Spaniards coming in for work daily, the lives of those living under the Rock are an extraordinary mix of English and Spanish culture.

We went to the country that Spain defined "the last colony in Europe" to ask a young Spanish person and a young Gibraltarian what it means to grow up under the Rock.

The young man in the video mentions they "need something". What they need is to unite The Campo:

A bit of history and culture is told within the video.
Michelle Keegan uncovers some exceptional women on her family tree. On her mother's side Michelle discovers that her Gibraltarian great-grandmother Leonor had to up sticks when all women and children and the elderly were evacuated from harm's way in Gibraltar to the apparent safety of London during the Second World War, a month before the start of the Blitz.

Maybe she has social media to tell her about he real significance of Gibraltar.

The Enigmatic Rock of Gibraltar: British Soul in Spanish Sunlight

by Kevin Erickson - excerpts:

Have you ever been struck by the urge to explore a place that's a melting pot of cultures, yet unmistakably unique? Nestled where the roaring Atlantic meets the tranquil Mediterranean lies the Rock of Gibraltar.

Kevin Erickson recalls the awe he felt standing atop the Rock of Gibraltar, gazing at two continents and two vast water bodies. But the intrigue doesn't end with panoramic views.

Erickson's escapades led him to some lesser-known treasures. "Don't miss the Mediterranean Steps," Kevin advises, "It's a slightly challenging hike but offers the best views!"

A Journey Through Time

Setting foot on Gibraltar is like stepping into a time machine. Each layer of its dense history peels back to reveal tales of ancient sailors, fierce battles, and the eternal dance between empires. From the Phoenicians to the Moors, and from the Spanish to the British, this rock has seen civilizations rise and wane.
