    I believe that the battle of Kalamata memorial service is coming up on Tuesday?
    I haven’t seen anything posted about it this year and wonder if anybody knows who is involved this year and what time etc it all begins?
    Any info about what is happening etc would be gratefully received.

    Time flies faster as one becomes older…… :roll:
    I missed the last one anyway, so it seems around 15 minutes to me. :mrgreen:

    Well yes you have got it in one there KP, but hey just a thought, why not give the old lamp a swing dust off that old tin hat and give us a blow by blow account of what it was actually like to have been there to witness and take part in the actual event, I am sure many of our younger members would like read a first hand account.

    Oh dear nimbus, clearly my subtlety is wasted…. please don’t make me have to explain my previous post as, like a good gag, it loses something when needing to be explained! :))

    Translation of post for those for whom the subtlety was too subtle:
    Nimbus said that it seems like 5 minutes….. I said that it only felt like 15 minutes to me…. :roll:

    Well, I think I was the only forum member there !

    Took a few photos which is difficult because of the media and the enclosed area with people milling about. Hopefully I can post them some time this week.

    I am glad I found this post as it gives me something to do next Tuesday.
    Is there anywhere else to check for events in Kalamata, specially with expats?

    Yes, I am a new to the forum and to Kalamata.

    Any help will be appreciated! Kids, no kids, it doesn’t matter – any event will do at this point :)

    Unless you posted this weeks ago and it took our magnificent leader a bit of time to ensure you’re a bona-fide forum member (welcome, by the way) before he decided your post was publishable on this equally magnificent forum: you’re about three weeks late! The memorial was on May 14th. :( :(

    Next year perhaps 😉

    Very fitting either way
