    Abstract

    The Second World War serves as a backdrop for this article on the life of the influential Greek migrant Lambros Gougos. Leaving his native Greece and his family just before the onset of the war, Gougos arrived in South Australia and by 1942 had made his way to Darwin to start a new life. The Second World War and the Civil War in Greece that followed saw Gougos’ family dislocated and scattered, most never to see him again. This paper recounts Gougos’ accomplishments in the face of this and many other adversities and pays tribute to his life in the Northern Territory, which is remembered to this day by members of Darwin’s Hellenic Macedonian Association.
