For our UK group, having missed the 2020 and 2021 services, it was absolutely wonderful to be back, once again, in Kalamata. The commemoration was held Tuesday 10th May at 11.00 a.m. at the Memorial in the Railway Park. The Mayor, Mr Athanasios Vasilopoulos, was unfortunately unable to attend, but was ably represented by the Deputy Mayor, Mr George Favas. Also in attendance was Captain Alex Bush, Defence Attaché from the British Embassy in Athens, as well as other civic and military dignitaries. The Deputy Mayor gave an address, followed by Captain Bush. Then Janet Parkin said a few words – once again reiterating that the Greek Campaign must not be forgotten, and thanked the City of Kalamata for continuing to be so supportive and for organizing “this important Annual Act of Remembrance”. Barry Parkin gave the oration. Laurel wreaths were laid by the Greek dignitaries and poppy tributes were laid by Captain Alex Bush and by the following Brotherhood representatives: Lorraine Gill in Remembrance of the Prisoners of War; Mrs Di Billnge on behalf of the Widows; Mrs Tricia Cruise In Memory of Deceased Members; Doug (Buster) Beckett on behalf of the Brotherhood of Veterans of the 1941 Greek Campaign and Jane Thomas on behalf of the British Residents of Kalamata. We were also joined this year by Mr Ronen Polovian who laid a wreath on behalf of the Jewish Pioneer Families Association. After the service we enjoyed refreshments in the Railway Park, generously hosted as usual by the Kalamata City Council. Many thanks also go to Astri Mavrea, Press and PR Officer at Kalamata City Hall for all her help and support.
