War Cemeteries

I have spent a number of holidays on Crete, and it is a lovely island.  Although this site is primarily concerned with the events of 1941 to the end of the war, we should remember that it is a great place to take a holiday.  

Site Map

I have included a few of my own photos, and I will gradually increase the number as and when I do site updates.  This section may increase to a few pages!  A little self indulgence isn't all bad.
