Lemnos Gallipoli Exhibition & Talk - Eltham Library Community Gallery - Thursday 4 to Monday 29 August 2016

Sick Australian nurses on Lemnos, 1915.
Further to our previous post regarding the above, Eltham Library has release publicity materials advertising the Lemnos Gallipoli Photographic Exhibition (4th-29th August 2016) and my presentation - "The Anzac's at Lemnos" - at the Library (7-8pm, Tuesday, 16th August 2016).

Eltham Library is located at Panther Place, Eltham Victoria 3095. Phone: (03) 9439 9266. It is open as follows: Monday-Thursday 10am-8.30pm; Friday-Saturday 10am-5pm; Sunday 10am-1pm.

The Lemnos Gallipoli Photographic Exhibition showcases images of the Anzacs taken on the Greek Island of Lemnos 1915–16. As a base for the Gallipoli campaign, the place of assembly and practise prior to the landings of 25th April, Lemnos was the location of the Australian hospitals and their 130 nurses. It also became a rest camp and place of recuperation for young Australians where an interaction developed with the local Greek population. Poignant photos reveal soldier and nurse visits to local villages, churches, spas and caf├ęs.
