OUR DIGGERS IN THE GREAT WAR OUR DIGGERS IN THE GREAT WAR OUR DIGGERS IN THE GREAT WAR OUR DIGGERS IN THE GREAT WAR Australia lost 274 dead, 507 wounded, 3,079 captured New Zealand lost 671 dead, 967 wounded, 2,180 captured British lost 791 dead, 268 wounded, 6,576 captured Germans lost 4,041 total dead and missing, 2,640 wounded, 17 captured and evacuated to Egypt Over 4450 Axis soldiers are buried in this cemetery near the WW2 airport of Maleme The peace of these two resting places of former foes leaves the visitor full of sadness yet comforted that in death these young men can sleep well on two of the most beautiful vistas on this lovely island. Crete is an easy 3 hour EASYJET flight from London’s Gatwick airport, to either Chania in the west or Heraklion in the east. GETAWAY featured a Fly/Drive 7 night holiday on Crete this year and several Aussies could be seen at the recommended hotels and resorts. A trip well worth doing at the end of the footie season, in late summer in Europe. Temperatures in late September are still in the high 20’s and remain warm at night.
