Historical information

A typed letter designed to be copied and circulated to members of Stan Savige's 'old mob' recounting events in Greece and Crete in 1941. Legatee Savige was deployed in Greece and this letter recounts the withdrawal of his company and those of Walker and Wrigley. He mentions Thermopylae, Kalamai, and evacuation via the ship Costa Rica, which was bombed by German planes and sunk.
The name Aaron (or Adrian) Beattie is handwritten on the first page so perhaps it is his copy of the letter.


A first hand account of the campaign in Greece during 1941, and an important link to Legatee Stan Savige, the founder of Legacy.
