Fine, but what does it represent and what's its history?
I know a picture tells a thousand words, but a few words about your pictures would make your posts so much more interesting.
I did not realise that the history of the memorial or other image that are intended for upload had to have some history attached. In this case the memorial represent Japanese service men who fell in the Mediterranean during Great War.
A metal plate fixed to the wall at the entrance to this cemetery has a description of Malta’s wartime experiences, and says that there are nearly 2,000 servicemen from the First World War, and 1,500 from the Second World War, buried in cemeteries on the island of Malta.
Within this cemetery are also two Memorials from WWI, one for men of the Japanese Navy, and the other for German Prisoners-of-War.
Also has the casualties of an explosion in the dockyard in 1915, those from HMS Russell that was blown up by mines in 1916, and those of the people who died in Royal Air Force Flying Boat, K.3595 in 1935. All the remains of service men from other cemetries that have been developed have been interred here as well as listed on the website.
