The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has issued its latest newsletter.
A key feature of the leaflet is a special new publication commemorating the Gallipoli campaign and the commemorative sites associated with it. You can view the publication by clicking here.
While the leaflet is information and welcome, sadly it ignores the role of Lemnos, its three military cemeteries and the over 2,000 soldiers and nurses who served at Gallipoli .
This is yet another terrible oversight. and this by the official Commonwealth organisation whicg looks after and promotes remembrance of our Anzac heritage. It is a body funded by the whole Commonwealth, including Australia and New Zealand.
The Hon John Pandazopoulos MP has already emailed the Commonwealth War Graves Commission protesting this oversight. He has written:
Commonwealth War Graves Commission - Suggested Letter
