I spotted this info on FaceBook and thought some people might like to see it here



This year the Service of ‪#‎Commemoration‬ for the Battle of ‪#‎Crete‬will be held on THURSDAY 22 May at 6pm at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery, Souda Bay. Please note that the service has moved from the usual day of Saturday due to the local and European elections.

Thanks for pointing it out Yvonne.

Although the UK Crete Veterans and Friends has formally been wound up,  there will be a party of  former members, somewhere around 50 I think, making their Crete pilgrimage again this year. I believe there will also be a couple of veterans amongst them.

Unfortunately, my trip had to be cancelled at the last minute; I was looking forward to catching up with a few friends. On the positive side, I had Piper Menzies contact me today via the Creteveterans website. Anyone who has attended the commemoration events will remember him and his playing.
