On the road to Myrtidiotissa in the 1950's.
Note that the road has not yet been sealed.

I applaud the initiative taken by Con Gavrilis, re: this important landmark.

"Dear Readers, and fellow Kytherians,

It has long been an obsession of mine to restore or replace the marble tabloid placed by the British in the hallow wall on the way to the Monastery and church of Panaghia Myrtithiotisa.

The original was severely damaged by the Germans and Italians during the occupation of 1941-1944.

If anyone has a old photo anywhere that can identify the rest of the tabloid wording, I would greatly appreciate your help in restoring this piece of Kytherian history."

Can anyone help in providing the original wording?
