Event Note

Ten Greek seamen, including Dimitros, were hidden in a citrus packing shed in Kfar Azar כפר אז"ר, waiting to get back to Greece Ελλάδα.
When no way could be found, they turned to the 'Yarkon Boys' who had a small vessel called Trumpeldor, which had been out ofs ervice for a long time, but was repaired and refitted within a short period.
The Greek seamen were taken to the Yarkon River נחל הירקון‎, boarded Trumpeldor and sailed to Turkey Türkiye, where Dimitros sold Trumpeldor, and purchased train tickets to Greece Ελλάδα.
That was the last mission of the 'Yarkon Boys'.
