      Just visited Malta and called in to the Capuccini Navel Cemetery to pay my respects. W.S.Donaldson was my great uncle. I only recently discovered his whereabouts by researching his medals, which were handed down to me. It was quite a shock to read of his suicide. It was never mentioned in the family as far as i was aware.

      I must say that the cemetery is extremely well looked after by the commission. There are also memorials to the fallen of other Nations.

      Kind regards...John Donaldson
