GRIVAS BACK IN CYPRUS: From an editorial in Kathimerini titled «The Hero:» «Greece yesterday welcomed a humble soldier who for four years was a hero… Georgios Grivas, aka Digenes, of Cyprus, arrived back in the country which he had left four years ago to offer his services for a great cause and has the satisfaction of having done his duty. He returns a hero. Cyprus, his own homeland, is now free. The sacrifices were not futile. Cyprus is no longer under the yoke. A huge crowd welcomed Grivas, grateful to this great soldier that showed himself to be worthy of both his homelands, Greece and Cyprus.
