Thessaloniki's ANZAC Trail; The Macedonian Front, 1915-1918; Salonika Campaign; Soldiers, Nurses and Politicians.

From Neos Kosmos

A fascinating panel presentation on The Macedonian Front 1915-1918, at The Hellenic Centre, London, last night. Professor Christine Hallett's presentation contained some graphic nurses' diary extracts and field hospital photographs (especially interesting, the diaries of an Australian nurse, Christine Strong). Christine Hallett is Professor of Nursing History at the University of Manchester.

There were other informative and scene-setting presentations by Sir Michael Llewellyn-Smith, Dr. Anthony Hirst, Professor Vasilis Gounaris and Alan Wakefield.

Dr. Hirst read from the diary of Dr. Theodore Stephanides.

The book is to be published (by Colenso books) later in 2018: "I have interwoven the Diary and Memoir (typographically distinguished) on a day-by-day basis, followed by correspondence and documents which illustrate Stephanides’ subsequent postings in the Greek army (1919–1922)" - Anthony Hirst (pdf).
