Lemnos - The Anzac Heritage

Lemnos's Anzac heritage is a crucial but often overlooked part of the Gallipoli campaign.
Lemnos was the major base of operations, the place where the Anzacs practiced the landings, where the Australian nurses and medical staff established their hospitals, where the sick and injured soldiers returned for treatment and where the soldiers returned for brief periods of rest.
It was also where the war that began at Gallipoli in 1915 ended in 1918, with the Armistice of Mudros.
