Lemnos Commemorative Events - April 2017

We have been advised that next years Gallipoli campaign commemorative events to be held on the Greek Island of Lemnos will be conducted on  April 19th, 20th and 21st. The main commemorative event will take place on April 20th.
The commemorations on Lemnos usually include commemorative events at both of the Islands War Cemeteries (at East Mudros and Portianou) and at the Anzac Memorial at Mudros harbour front.

Also for your information we anticipate that the Australian Embassy in Athens will conduct its annual Anzac Day service at Phaleron War Cemetery in Athens on April 25th.
These events may be followed by WW2 commemorative events in Kalamata and on Crete - as they have been in the past.
As more details are confirmed and come to our notice we will endeavour to publicise them on this website.
However if you are planning to visit Lemnos to coincide with its commemorative events or the Anzac Day service at Phaleron, we urge you to contact the authorities on Lemnos or the Australian Embassy in Athens directly to confirm arrangements.
We cannot accept any responsibility for any changes in arrangements.
