Tuesday 10 October, 6:15pm. ANZAC troops battle for Greece

On the 6 April 1941 German troops attacked Greece through Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. In response the allies sent a small force of British, Australian, New Zealander and Cypriot troops to Greece in what has become known as the ‘The Second Gallipoli’. The force was outgunned and outnumbered in difficult terrain. However the ANZAC troops had some success on smaller local fronts, which delayed the inevitable, and an evacuation of the allies began in late April. Some small isolated groups didn’t make the evacuation, but the bravery of the Greek civilians saw many of these troops escape.

Lieutenant Colonel Rod Cooke (Retd) will discuss the Battle for Greece and the implications it would have for World War Two.
