NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

Centenary of the Armistice in the Mediterranean - sail the Aegean, Gallipoli and beyond

Commemorating the forgotten Armistices signed weeks before the Armistice with Germany: with Bulgaria on the Salonica Front and with the Ottoman Turks on board HMS Agamemnon, Mudros, Lemnos

Agamamnon Memorial, Mudros, Lemnos, Greece

This commemorative tour starts in the mountainous terrain of the Salonika front where the breakthrough by Greek, French and British troops brought the warring parties to the table. The group then sails into Mudros Harbour on the Greek Island of Lemnos where HMS Agamemnon hosted the Ottoman envoys signing the Treaty of Mudros silencing the guns on the Palestine Front. Everybody knows the rest of the Armistice story...

Eminent First World War historian Professor Jay Winter is speaking on the War’s aftermath en route. Prof Winter will guide a visit to the Gallipoli peninsula and then the ship visits the ancient city of Pergamon, now in Turkey, and the islands of Mykonos, Delos and Crete.
