“History of the Hellenic Air Force”, Vol. II, 1919-1929

The Expedition in Asia Minor and the first years of the period between the two Wars.

The Air Force participated in the Asia Minor campaign with four Squadrons of Army Cooperation and one of Naval Cooperation. Reconnaissance, air photography, machine-gunning, bombarding and air-combats constitute its multiple action.

During the peaceful period that followed after the end of the Asia Minor expedition the Air Force was reorganized and modernized with new types of English and French aircraft.

In 1928 an important accomplishment was achieved, considering the potential of the Air Force at that time, the Tour of the Mediterranean by the Breguet 19 “HELLAS” with 1st Lieutenant E. Papadakos as pilot and colonel Ch. Adamidis as observer.
