Major Robert Moran
2/3 Australian Infantry Battalion
"When we got off the boat ... we march past ... like through the town - the Greeks were out waving - wonderful reception actually from the Greeks and we passed a place there and they said that it was the German Embassy ... and the Embassy was counting ... having a good look and knew exactly what was going on.

Nobody could take any notice because we were told that Germany was not at war with Greece. Our arrival in PORT PIREAUS was well known to (a) the Greeks and well known to the Germans too.... No secret there. (laughing)"
