        who served so bravely in #Athens and #Crete in April and May 1941 in the face of the enemy.

        Mrs Una Keast was the last of the famous #ANZAC nurses from #Australia. She died last October. 

        It was in April 2016, a delegation of the Grand Lodge of New South Wales and New Zealand together with #Greek Consul­ General, Dr Stavros Kyrimis visited Mrs. Keast.

        On behalf of AHEPA NSW, Grand President, Bro. John Kallimanis presented her with a bronze statue of the Anzac hero, John Simpson Kirkpatrick with his donkey from Lemnos, accompanied by a certificate of appreciation for Mrs Keast’s service to liberty and democracy.

        Una’s story is to be found here.
