This is also the last public event of Consul-General Dr Stavros Kyrimis organized by the Consulate of Greece.

 

The iconographic material commemorating the Australian campaigns that were fought on the Greek mainland and later on Crete has been mainly drawn from private collections, which also contains films, documents and stills from other sources. This material was either purchased by or donated to the JCCBCG, and the committee is greatly indebted to the original copyright owners for their generosity and effort in documenting the history of Anzacs in Greece. As it was impossible to trace and to acknowledge them all, to them goes the committee's  unreserved thanks and apology.
