450 Australian soldiers and nurses served in the Salonika campaign from 1915 until the end of the war. These included the famous Australian feminist and author, Myles Franklin, and the famous Australian soldier, Ned Herring, who served as an artillery officer in the campaign and would return to northern Greece in 1941 to fight with the Anzac's alongside the Greek Army resisting the Germany invasion. 5 Australians remain buried across northern Greece, one of these being Sister Gertrude Munro from Ballarat, who lies buried in Mikra Military Cemetery, Thessaloniki.
