Pietà, Malta

Focus on Ta' Braxia Cemetery:  "A beloved schoolmaster of Radley College who died while on holiday in Malta": only 45 years old. It looks like his body was not repatriated, but buried on the island where he died. Heading the slab that marks his grave is the Maltese cross, which is almost like getting knighted posthumously!
