The Lermnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee would like to congratulate the Victorian students on their successful commemorative tour of Lemnos and the Victorian Government and Tour organisers (especially Professor Scates and Patricia Pollard) for including Lemnos in this years tour. We would like to thank Ms Papapanagiotou and her students at Moudors Senior Secondary School.
And we would especially like to thank Demetri Boulotis, Deputy Mayor of Lemnos and a good friend of our Committee and the Anzac story for supporting this important tour. Well done Demetri.
