In a beautiful cemetery in Malta lies the body of one very special man. This man was a well-regarded Officer in World War One because he made the decision to bring many of the injured soldiers into Malta to give them treatment that would help them get well again. Many lives were saved.
After his death, he was placed in a cemetery with some of the soldiers he had rescued all those years ago. In gratitude, a sculpture was erected in his memory. Even now, the statue has been recognised as one of the most important sculptures in Maltese history.
