  • Description

    Greece's Regent-Primer George Papadopoulos, together with members of the army-backed cabinet, on Saturday (28 October) attended a service in Athens Cathedral to mark Greece's entry into World War Two. Later, the Prime Minister laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and reviewed a military parade.

    At the Cathedral, Archbishop Ieronymous, Primate of Greece, officiated at the service. Similar ceremonies were held in towns throughout the country. It was the 32nd anniversary of the day when Greece refused to accept an ultimatum from Italian forces poised to invade the country from Albania.

    The military parade in Athens included representatives from all the armed forces. In addition, mechanised units, missile carriers, artillery and a fly-past were included.
