"The Gulf of Mudros, one of the best natural harbours in the Aegean, became the base, in the First World War, of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force. Hence Sir Ian Hamilton launched his attack on the Dardanelles (25 April 1915). In the same harbour the armistice with Turkey was concluded on 30 October 1918 on board the H.M.S. Agamemnon, - East Mudros Military Cemetery, to the N.E. of the town with c.900 British Commonwealth dead, contains also a French memorial, though the French graves were removed in 1922. At Portianos, on the w. side of the inner harbour, lie a further 350 dead of the Gallipoli campaign."
The guide also mentions Lemnos many other attractions, its ancient and medieval history.
