Welcome on board lol
I will work twice more this year to save enough money to go back with my family there ,next summer.
A very interesting and moving thread and obviously a personal one to yourself so thanks for sharing. I personally have no connection to the MTO as my Grandfather landed on Sword on 6th June '44 but I would like to go to Crete and pay my respects to all the soldiers who fought and paid the ultimate price there.
It is a cracking place to visit, you have the history, both Ancient and WW2 military and the people are fantastic, nice weather, just overall nice (yes we like it lol)
Well with it being the Med, and nice weather I'm sure I can work a family holiday into a history related trip, or is that the other way round?!
