Further on the road to Omalos is a memorial plaque to World War II resistant fighters killed by the Germans. The New Zealander Dudley Perkins (Kiwi or Vasili) and his Cretan companion were ambushed near here on 28 02 1944. Their bravery is recorded in the Cretan folklore and their exploits written in The Cretan Runner by George Psychoundakis and Vasili The Lion of Crete by Murray Elliot. Mr. Perkins is buried in the Allied War Cemetery in Souda Bay.
