1st Bn Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment

(Berkshire and Wiltshire)

Malta - Scrapbook three 

 

Due to the large number of Images that have been made available for the Malta posting it has become necessary to open up Page three (Not a nude in sight). We are indebted to Dave NICHOLLS and Martin (Spud) TAYLOR for their assistance in providing material. This page will differ in as much as we will use the 'Thumbnail' method to hopefully assist in a quicker down load times. Many of the images are unnamed, if you do recognize any of the lads please get in touch and we will add the names.

As a point of interest copies of all images (Used or otherwise ) will be deposited at the Museum for retention and availability for future historians.
