Nancy Lane - along with her partner, John Cook, took part in our recent Anzac Tour of Lemnos in April 2013. On returning, Nancy has put pen to paper and written a beautiful article in her local paper telling of Lemnos' Anzac links and her tour of the Island. One of the places she mentions in the famous mineral springs baths at Therma on the western side of Lemnos - which are still operating. Above is an image of the inside of the traditional baths, that Nacny has photographed and its reproduced in her article. Well done Nancy.
