Victorian Premiers Anzac Student Prize Winners on Lemnos - More Publicity


More stories have appeared this week publicising the Lemnos link to Anzac - in the UK and throughout the Victorian returned services community.
These concern the recent successful tour of Lemnos by the Victorian Premier's Anzac Student Prize Winners.
In the United Kingdom, the journal of the major association concerning those interested in the Gallopoli campaign - The Gallipolian - has recently published our story on this Tour.
Click on the links below to read my report on the Tour:

Victorian students tour story - The Gallipolian UK Autumn 2014 pg 2
Victorian students tour story - The Gallipolian UK Aurumn 2014 pg 3
Thanks again to Foster Summerson, Editor of The Gallipolian magazine for communicating our stories in the United Kingdom.
In another development, the recent edition of Mufti, the journal of the RSL Victorian Branch, contained three stories on the students tour. One of these stories was by Michael Manoussakis and concerning his experiences of Lemnos. Michael's story re-inforces the effect commemorative visits to Lemnos have on those who walk its Anzac trail.
