ANZAC DAY SERVICE

Battle of Greece Commemorated

 

May 2011

 

This year's ANZAC Day commemoration coincided with the 70th anniversary since the invasion of Greece and the Battle of Crete in the Second World War, where the Australian army lost 600 of its men defending the Greek land against the Nazi invaders.

An Australian Military Historian, author of the book "Diggers and Greeks", Dr Maria Hill from Syndey, was invited by the Renmark RSL branch and spoke on the topic at the ANZAC Day Commemoration Ceremony held on Monday April 25 at the Cross of Sacrifice, Ral Ral Avenue, Renmark.

Dr Maria Hill, herself of Greek origin, spoke about the very strong connection between the people of Greece and Australia which dates back to the days of World War 2 and said it was important to learn more about this part of our history.
