Hellenic Commemorative Medal

The Association became aware of this medal through an article which appeared in the September 2013 edition of the RSL magazine, "Mufti".

All surviving WW2 veterans (or their descendants) may apply for the medal if they or their parent / grandparent served in the Battle of Greece and/or the Battle of Crete.

The Association has initiated discussions to establish the process involved in applying for the medal.

We have been advised that Full Service Histories will be needed to prove the bona fides of the applicants.

We were also advised that the Hellenic Commemorative Medal is not a new medal and was first announced some two years ago in 2012.

Because of the direct involvement of 7 Battery in the Battle of Crete, the Association believes the majority of the remaining surviving members of 7 Battery, as well as the descendants of deceased members, would be eligible to apply for the medal.

More detailed information will be added to this page as it becomes available, but in the meantime, general information may be obtained from Steve Kyritsas, President, Hellenic Sub-Branch on 0418 571 800.
