On Thursday 04 June, 2022, we had the pleasure of welcoming to the Maritime Museum of Crete the President of the Cretan Federation of Australia and New Zealand Mr. Antonis Tsourdalakis accompanied by Mr. Georgios Kosmadakis. At the entrance they were welcomed by the President of the Museum Commodore (Eng) Emmanuel Petrakis HN ret with deputy general secretary Mrs. Eleftheria Douka. A guided tour of the premises of our Museum took place, and in particular the exhibition on the Battle of Crete, with special emphasis on the Naval operations of that period, but also the sign for the Battle on 42nd Street in Tsikalaria, Chania. At the end of the tour, there was an extensive discussion on issues of common interest and the joint implementation of cultural activities and events both in Greece and in Australia, and at the end of the discussions, the exchange of ceremonial gifts followed.
