Lemnis Centenery of Anzac - Commemorative Event 8 - Mudros Harbour Wreath-laying and Folkloric Event

The final wreath-laying event took place as Mudros Harbour's Anzac memorial on the 20th April.
Yet again the sailors and ships company of HMAS Success made their presence felt. Along with diplomatic and military representatives, our President Lee Tarlamis layed a wreath on behalf of our Committee. Others to lay wreaths as part of the service included Malama Varvaras on behalf of the Lemnian Community of Victoria, Christina Despoteris on behalf of the Pan Lemnian Federation of Australia and Nick Kambouris on behalf of the RSL Hellenic Sub-Branch.
Following the wreath laying ceremony, we were all treated to traditional dancing by Lemnians wearing traditional outfits.
Thanks to the Lemnos authorities, Lemnos Friends of Anzac and the local Lemnian community for organising this great display of local culture.
