Association Research Officer's note: Neil Donohue, whose father-in-law served in the Crete campaign, is active in promoting the memory of the campaign, the men who served there, and the people of Crete who sheltered them at great risk to themselves.

Information that Neil has gathered has a prominent place in the excellent 2010 book by Maria Hill: Diggers and Greeks: the Australian campaigns in Greece and Crete, UNSW Press, Sydney.
