If you are planning to visit Lemnos at this time, we encourage you to attend these important commemorative services. If you are able to attend, our Committee would appreciate copies of any photographs you may take.
Congratulations to Lemnos
Our Committee congratulates the Lemnos authorities and all involved in the coming Commemorative events.
The authorities on Lemnos have organised these events for many years and continue to do so. This is a great honour to the Anzac's and other Allied troops who served there and those who are buried there, as well as the local Lemnians who supported them in 1915 and their families and descendants in Australia and across the world.
