Thanks to Dimitris for providing the following report and images on the events on Lemnos in April this year.
"The main event took place at East Moudros Military Cemetery at 17:30 of April 21, 2016.
There were an honorary platoon from the Greek Army (below).
The event started with a Memorial Service by Orthodox priests (below).
After the event the representative of the North Aegean Region hosted a small reception at Moudros Harbour, where he gave memorabilia to those who took part in the event.
Upon receiving the gift (below) I expressed the wish that I will not have to represent again the Gallipoli Association (UK) and that the following year you will be here and to lay the wreath yourself.
Other Photos from the events provided by Mr Boulotis are reproduced below:
