8th Batt - Malta
« on: October 04, 2009, 12:30:29 PM »
I have just returned from Malta and visited the revamped War Museum at Fort St Elmo in Valletta. One ofd the new exhibits is a soldier dressed in uniform bearing the "Manchester" shoulder flash together with the 8th Batt crest in the background!

I took a reasonable photo and would be happy to post it if someone can advise!

Have a look at this WW11 Malta site. There is section on the Manchester's and the photograph of the solder at the bottom of the page.
