Siege Bell War Memorial in Valletta, Malta

During World War II, Axis forces wanted Malta’s strategic position in the Mediterranean so the Germans and Italians relentlessly bombed the island for almost two-and-a-half years. Approximately 7,000 Maltese lost their lives during the Siege of Malta. As a tribute to those victims, this monument by Michael Sandle was erected overlooking the Grand Harbour. It was inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 1992.
