The Battle of Crete Memorial Committee (WA) - Reminder

With commemorations for the anniversary of the Battle of Crete upon us, The Battle of Crete Memorial Committee (WA) wishes to remind readers that it will soon be seeking support from the Greek community to fulfil its aim of establishing a specific war memorial, befitting the significance that the Battle of Crete has in Australian and Greek history. Supported by the Western Australian State Government, the RSLWA, the Greek-Australian RSL (WA) and various Greek associations, the Committee has been allocated a site in Kings Park for a future memorial. When completed the memorial will be a place where people can pay their respects, lay wreaths and learn and reflect on the Battle of Crete. Below are extracts from two newspaper articles reflecting the importance and bonds between Australians and Greeks during the Battle of Crete.
