HMS DARING VISIT TO KEFALLINIA – MAY 2017
I would like to thank you for the generous and warm welcome you offered to HMS Daring’s Commanding Officer, Commander Marcus Hember, and his crew throughout their visit to your beautiful island of Kefallinia on 1 and 2 May 2017. They were deeply honoured to have the opportunity to commemorate the events of 1953 with representatives of the island.
The Coast Guard and Police Authorities’ personnel demonstrated the utmost professionalism during a medical and crew transfer operation that the weather made particularly challenging. Please pass on my thanks to them for their excellent support. During the well-arranged event on May 2nd, the British visitors experienced your gracious hospitality and welcomed your kind words, reflecting the strong bonds between our two nations.
I would like to extend our gratitude to ΚΕΔΥΚΕ and also to ΡΙΦΟΡΤΣΟ for delivering what the Commanding Officer informs me was an extremely moving and historically invaluable presentation. We could not have asked for anything more. Once again I extend my heartfelt thanks.
