the ranks of the liberation movement and worked as an officer of EPON
in his own village. After the Varkiza agreement he did not cease his
work for EPON and because of that he was arrested and sent to jail.
After his release in 1947 he joined the ranks of DAG at the headquarters
in Vich. He took part in all of the battles of the 18th brigade, and
in the battle near the village of Leshtina in 1948 he died a hero.
