Battle of Crete - 80th Commemoration Pilgrimage May 2021 – be part of a small and exclusive group to celebrate this historic event – check it out here - https://mondotravel.co.nz/article/18139
On May the 20th 1941, ANZAC, Greek and British forces stood side by side with the heroic population of Crete in the defense of their Southern Mediterranean Island against the elite of Hitler’s war machine. The ensuing battle is etched forever in ANZAC history.
Now, 80 years later, veterans and the descendants of these brave soldiers, will join with the local Cretan population to honour their courageous endeavours. Join us in 2021 and attend the commemorative services, explore the battlefields and share the stories.
To help us understand even more we have accompanying our group Dr Mark Wilson. Mark’s knowledge of the battles and the surrounding events are unequalled.
Bio - Dr Mark M.J. Wilson, CMCILT, MNZIM
Mark has been fascinated by the Battle of Crete for a long time and studies military history as a hobby. After reading Dan Davin’s acclaimed history on Crete he was determined to go see the ground himself and in 2006, 2011 and 2016 Mark was the historian for the 65th, 70th and 75th Anniversary pilgrimages to Crete which included a number of veterans. They shared their personal experiences which was a highlight and a privilege. Mark spent 21 years in the NZ Army as a full-time regular soldier and after retirement and a bit of gold mining, now works as an Associate Professor at Lincoln University. Military history still remains an avid hobby and he is looking forward to sharing his comprehensive knowledge on the coming 80th commemoration pilgrimage.
