Malta GC.

The George Cross was awarded to the Island of Malta during the Second World War on 15 April 1942, so as to “bear witness to the heroism and devotion of its people” during the great siege it underwent in the early parts of World War II.

The memorial that I photographed was in London, close to Tower Bridge and Tower Hill at Google Earth co-ordinates  51° 30.567’N,   0° 4.792’W.
