Lemnos Gallipoli Unveiling - Speeches Booklet & RSL Hellenic Sub-Branch Newsletter Released

The Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee has released its latest publication - The Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial: The Unveiling Event and Key Speeches.
This booklet has been prepared to both document the great unveiling event for our Memorial held on the 8th August 2015 and to bring the speeches delviered at the event to a wider audience.
Many people have contacted the Committee expressing their apologies for not being able to attend the event. They will now be able to read the key addresses from the day and see the pictures of the event.
The booklet contains a message from our President, Lee Tarlamis, a report of the event itself and a number of speeches from the day.
Of especially importance are those speeches given by the many descendants of nurses and diggers who served on Lemnos in 1915. We were especially honored by their presence and participation. The Committee is keen to make their stories and reminiscences of their ancestors to a wider audience. We thank them for making their speeches available.
The booklet was prepared by myself as Secretary.

You can view and download the booklet by clicking here.
We hope you enjoy the booklet.
