Militrary Service

Military service is compulsory for all males in Greece. For our research it seems that doing military service in the Greek Navy was decided by ballot and, fortunately for us, the people chosen were sometimes published in newspapers. This database shows the year they were called to serve.

The date shown is the date the newspaper was published. The year they were called to serve is listed.
