115 Years of the Greek Australian Alliance Booklet

2016 will be the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Crete and Greek Campaign of 1941.
The Australian Joint Committee for the Commemoration of the Battle of Crete and Greek Campaign has had produced a booklet outlining some of the key connections between Australia and Greece - from Greek Australians serving in the Australian forces fighting in the Boer War, through the role of Lemnos in the Gallipoli campaign, Australians serving on the Salonika Front, Australian refugee aid workers after WW1 including Major George Treloar and Sidney and Joyce Loch, to the service of Greek and Australian servicemen and women in WW2 and beyond.
It also has an interesting map of Greece identifying some of the key of the Greek Australian connection.
You can view and download the booklet by clicking on the following link - 115 Years of the Greek Australian Alliance 1899-2014
Thanks to Christina Despoteris for this information.
