Greece Centenary of Anzac - Commemorative Event 11 - Anzac Service at Athens Phaleron Military Cemetery
Anzac Day, 100 years on, at Phaleron Commonwealth War Cemetery Athens, where over 800 Australians are commemorated - including Greek-Australian Anzac Private James Zampelis of St Kilda who served in the Middle East and the Greek campaign, only to be killed on Crete.
Along with many others representating various countries, our President Lee Tarlamis was honoured to lay a wreath on behalf of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee. Malama Varvaras layed a wreath on behalf of the Lemnian Community of Victoria, Liz Kaydos on behalf of Lemnos 1915.
Another humbling experience along with all the events that we and so many others have participated in over the last week as part of the Centenary of Anzac Commemorations on Lemnos and in Greece.
Lest we Forget.
Jim Claven and Lee Tarlamis
Secretary and President
