The Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee thanks the Municipality of Lemnos for co-hosting the Conference as well as the various speakers who presented to Conference and Anzac Tours in Greece.
We would also like to thank all who took the time to participate in the Conference, whether they travelled from overseas or from the many lovely villages of Lemnos. We hope this Conference will provide a new beginning to Lemnos' link to Anzac and Gallipoli.
