Most people are unaware that 83% of 6,203 Australians captured by the Italians and Germans during the Second World War came from the Greek and Crete campaigns. They spent the remainder of the war in German prisoner camps. The diggers however were not issued with a Greek campaign medal by their own government making them feel that their sacrifice was not recognised, even though Greece issued them with a Greek medal and a medal from the city of Rethymnon in Crete.

Support the Australian soldiers who fought in Greece and Crete by signing the online petition to urge the Australian Government to issue a Greek campaign medal to veterans and/or their children for the 70th anniversary of these campaigns in 2011.
