A reminder to all that our Second Annual Commemorative Service in recognition of Lemnos' role in the Gallipoli campaign will take place next Saturday, 12th August 2017, starting at 11am, at the Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial, Lemnos Square, Foote Street, Albert Park.
Our President Lee Tarlamis will be Master of Ceremonies.
This year our event will take place at the same location - recently re-named Lemnos Square by the Victorian Government on the submission of the City of Port Phillip, following our proposal to the City.
Colonel (Retired) Ms Jan McCarthy will give this year's keynote address. Jan is a former Director of Army Nursing and current President of the Returned Nurses Sub-Branch of the RSL. She served in 1st Field Hospital in Vung Tau during 1968-1969 during the Vietnam War and went on to complete 26 years service with the Australian Army.
In honour of Warrant Officer Archibald Monk who welcomed the Australian nurses to Lemnos in August 1915 - Shrine Governor & Squadron Leader Steve Campbell-Wright will play the bagpipes at the event.
Again we will have representatives of the Sunshine 30ACU Cadet Unit, thanks to Major Terry Kanellos, Committee member and Secretary of the RSL Hellenic Sub-Branch.
And a lot more!
A big thank you to Committee member and Lemnos veteran descendant Deb Stewart for distributing 500 of the above event leaflets throughout the surrounding area of the Memorial.
Come along. All welcome.
