Hi Guy,

I recently purchased a book on the Helos Lokos (Sacred Squadron?) unit and am in a bit of bother reading it (didn't realise at the time it was all Greek to me literally!!!).



I wondered if anyone could help me out with roughly what the appendix page says as I'm trying for a nominal roll of member during the period 1939-45, and would love to know if these appendix have them or not.

Here is the page:





Thanks in advance,
Tom :D

Hey...i'll give it a shot from work tomorrow...
At a first glance the first page refers to the names of the ones that joined
Hieros Lohos (Sacred squadron) [Ιερός Λόχος] in the operations in Tunisia.

And the second and third page refer to the operations,dates,places and what kind of forces were send out.

This was the other reason I bought the book, I had just obtained this almost unnobtainable badge (I know of only a couple of other examples, maybe 5 give or take), and hoped I may find some reference to it (the one shown at the top of this post is a copy I found online).
