Malta 1888-1899

Postby plbramham » Tue Jun 04, 2013 11:28 am

Here’s an interesting webpage I came across by accident- “Regiments of the Malta Garrison” :

http://maltaramc.com/regmltgar/1bord.html

It features 1st and 2nd Bn The Border Regiment postings in Malta between 1888 and 1927. It gives dates, strengths, barrack locations, and places the battalions embarked for e,g. Bombay, Natal, Khartoum, Shanghai.
There are also photos of memorials – including one for a 16 year old drummer, plus copies of documents & rolls.

(Note 1st Bn were in Malta 1897-99. 2nd Bn were in Malta 1888-90 and 1924-27)
