Melbourne Shrine to hold Armistice of Mudros service




Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance will hold an online service Sunday to commemorate 103 years since the Armistice of Mudros. 

Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee president Lee Tarlamis thanks the Shrine for running the service. 

“They have thereby ensured that the commemoration of the Armistice and the service and sacrifice of thousands continue to be remembered,” Tarlamis said.

The Armistice, signed between the Entente Powers and the Ottoman Empire on 30 October 1918, signalled the end of WWI in the eastern Mediterranean.

Lemnos was an advance base during the Gallipoli campaign of 1915-16. It treated wounded and sick Australian and Hellenic soldiers. 

More than 200 Australian and New Zealand service personnel rest in Lemnos’ war cemeteries. 

The Shrine will lay a wreath in remembrance of these soldiers at its annual service this 31 October at 11.45 am.
