Touring Canadian Nurses and Soldiers Lemnos Sites

Photograph Jim Claven 2015
On the 19th April I had the honouring of showing the Canadian Ambassador, His Excellency Robert Peck, his wife and his team - including the Canadian Military attaché - a number of the sites on Lemnos connected with the Canadian nurses who served on the Island in its two field hospitals as well as the graves of some of the Canadian soldiers buried on Lemnos. Also took the opportunity to visit the historic Maritime Museum at Nea Koutali, as well as a former monastery that had been visited by Canadian nurses in 1915.
The latter served in the Newfoundland regiments and formations with the British Army at Gallipoli.
Lest we forget.
