    Hi folks. I'm new on this particular board but have been around elsewhere for decades, with a particular interest in Crete.

    Amongst other things I am a member (non-veteran) of what remains of the now disbanded UK Crete Veterans and Friends. We are down to two surviving veterans that I and those in our group know of, both in the South West. I have an New Zealand friend who shares my interest and who is a flim maker and is looking to try and do a piece on our Batle of Crete veterans and interview them.

    There may be more veterans out there who never joined the association, as was, and it woud be good to make contact with them just to know who they are, and perhaps for the film.

    I would be most grateful if anyone knowing of a UK veteran of the Battle of Crete 1941, now 77 years ago so going to be in their late 90s, could make contact through tim@creteveterans.org.uk (the website is currently down awaiting a remake)

    Many thanks

    Tim - aka Cretophile
