Map and document outlining 115 years of the Greek Australian Alliance

The pamphlet contains the 115 years of the Greek Australian Alliance map in the centre pages.

A high resolution copy of the map can be viewed or downloaded here:

These documents are reasonably accurate sourced from many referenced books but are really intended to wet one’s appetite to learn more. They outline the intertwined relationship of Greeks and Australians that began in 1899 when the first Greek Australians fought in the Boer War.

It covers the participation and commemorations by Australians and Greeks in two Anzac Campaigns in Greece / Crete and other world conflicts and peacekeeping missions .

It is my view that this is a very unique Greek & Australian story.
