Hello everyone, and welcome to Athens! This is my first cache to hide! It's also the first cache to be placed in the newly opened "Pedion Areos" park.
It's a small purple container inside a plastic transparent bag.
Contents: logbook, GC declaration in English, a sea-shell, a micro-SD adapter and a metal star.
BE VERY CAREFUL OF THE MUGGLES!!!
The Sacred band (Greek: Ιερός Λόχος) was a Greek special forces unit formed in 1942 in the Middle East, composed entirely of Greek officers and officer cadets under the command of Col. Christodoulos Tsigantes. It fought alongside the SAS in the Libyan desert and the Aegean, as well as with General Leclerc's Free French Forces in Tunisia. It was disbanded in August 1945, and is the precursor of the modern Greek Special Forces.
