The five Greek regi- / ments of Evzones specializing in mountain / fighting have in six weeks made a name for / themselves that ranks with that of the Fin- / nish ski troops. Fighting against similar odds, they had last driven the overwhelm- / ing Italian Army out of Greece and up the / Albanian coast. This was against all rules, / for the Greeks were supposed to lose the / war in jig-time. When they last fought, in / 1922, they were badly beaten by the Turks. / In battle the Evzone wear khaki skirts.>
