Book Launch: The Salter Album - Encounters in Malta's Prisoner of War Camps 1914-1920


Salter Album

The National Archives developed this book around the Salter Album, an autograph album of the prisoners of war detained in Malta, kept by George Salter, an English soldier serving at the camps.  Salter got married to Mary Tabone, a Maltese lady employed at the camps as well and they had a daughter, Marylyn Peringer.  With her assistance, and supported by the embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, we published this book that includes the Salter Album as well as articles by Marylyn herself, Giovanni Bonello, Alan Green and Stephen C Spiteri.
