Battle of Kalamata Memorial Service

Hope a lot of expats will attend this event.

The info below was copied from the Greek Veterans website..


2016 will be the 75th anniversary. Clearly, this will probably be the last ‘significant’ anniversary that our surviving veterans (now well into their 90s) will able to attend. We are very keen to make contact with as many veterans and their families as possible, including those from Australia and New Zealand and other Allied Forces, to join us and take part in what will be a very special and unique event.

We are pleased to announce that the date for the 75th anniversary ceremony in Kalamata will be Tuesday 24th May 2016. We are in discussion with officials regarding the arrangements for this very special event and will publish details in due course.
Nostalgia is not what it used to be.
