Memorials unveiled in Pylos and Methoni

Also in May 2018, the Municipality of Pylos Nestor and the Pylos-Methoni WW2 Memorials Organising Committee of Australia arranged for the unveiling of two memorials commemorating and honouring those who lost their lives as a result of submarine attacks on two ships, which were taking allied PoWs from Libya to Italy, off the coasts of Pylos and Methoni in 1941 and 1942.

The ceremonies took place in Pylos and Methoni on Sunday 6th May and were well attended, including members of the Brotherhod who were in Greece for the annual Kalamata ceremony. 

These memorials form part of an initiative, supported by Jim Claven, an Australian journalist and historian, by Melbourne’s Panpyliaki and Pammessinia Brotherhood to develop a commemorative trail of memorials to Anzac troops at a number of locations across Greece.
