East Mudros describes the eastern shores of the harbour named after its principal port and town Moudros (Greek: Μούδρος) on the Greek island of Lemnos.
Mudros is a village on the shores of a large bay on the south of the island of Lemnos, but during the campaign the word was used indiscriminately for the bay and the island itself.
