Nine Evzones, the soldiers of the Greek Presidential Guard, will visit Sydney to commemorate ANZAC Day.

Released by special permission of the President of Greece, the Evzones will visit Adelaide and Sydney to take part in the official ANZAC Day ceremonies, celebrating the role of the soldiers of Greece and Crete, often known as the ‘forgotten ANZACs’.

In Sydney, the Evzones will join the Allied Forces for the ANZAC Day March, and form a Guard of Honour.

The Evzones’ arrival in Sydney on April 24 will follow a historic four-day visit to Adelaide, organised by the Foundation for Hellenic Studies and supported by the South Australian Government. Official events in Adelaide will include a march to the city’s War Memorial and a pre-game flag-raising ceremony at Adelaide Oval for the AFL ANZAC Day round between Port Adelaide and Carlton.

The defense of Greece by the ANZACs and other Commonwealth forces is recognised by historians as one of the major contributions to the Second World War, significantly delaying the Nazis’ invasion of Russia.

The Evzones’ visit is sponsored by The Hellenic Club, Sydney’s most prominent Greek community club, promoting and celebrating Greek culture.
