Lemnos, Imbros and Tenedos Maps - UK Official War History



The maps of Lemnos Imbros and Tenedos reproduced here are from a large map of the Dardanelles area produced for the UK Official History of WW1 - Naval Operations.
These Islands had been liberated and joined to Greece in 1912 during the Balkan Wars. They were offered by Greece for use during WW1 and were occupied by Allied forces. They all played a role in the Gallipoli campaign, especially Lemnos as the principal forward base for the whole campaign.
