Lemnos: The Other Side of Gallipoli

Lemnos: The Other Side of Gallipoli

Jim Claven MA, Secretary of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee, will recount the often forgotten role that the Greek Island of Lemnos played in the Gallipoli campaign. Lemnos was the forward base for the campaign and the location of soldiers’ rest camps and field hospitals. There were 148 diggers buried amongst the over 1,200 other Allied graves on the island. Lemnos is also the location for the armistice which ended the First World War in the East.
