Military History Tours          On Tour - ANZAC Day in Athens 26 April 2012

  

This morning we left Athens for our trip up country. Our first stop was at the Corinth Canal where we discussed the action and the German effort to stop the bridge being destroyed. They failed and the bridge was blown. This gave some extra time for those moving south to the evacuation beaches to be lifted off.

Our photos firstl show the group leaving on the coach, then lunch and the streets at Navplion. A most important stop as it was here that the Ulster Prince ran aground and was finally sunk by air, thereby blocking the harbour and stopping further evacuations. The spot where the Ulster Prince met its fate is also shown.

From Navplion we headed over the range towards the last of the evacuation beaches at Kalamata. Our group posed near the top of the range with Navplion in the background.



 

At Kalamata, we had agroup photograph around the special memorial, laid in 1994 by veterans from Australia, for those lost in the evacuation from the area of Kalamata.

We then pushed on to Olympia where we are to stay two nights and in the morning we will visit the Historic Olympic site.

A series of photographs of our superb accommodation, Olympic Asty, is included to show the standard that we try to achieve.
