  • Description

    Commander in Chief British Forces in the Middle East General Sir Dudley Ward arrived at Athens May 10 for a 5-day visit to Greece. From the airport he went to the city to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the first British General to do so since the end of violence in Cyprus. But it was not his first visit to Greece - where he held a command towards the end of World War Two.

    During his visit he is expected to have discussion on the British bases problem in Cyprus and on the disturbed situation in Turkey after the recent riots.
