British Army Officers Make Memorial Dive To HMS Maori

03 October 2012

British Army Officers Captain Ken McIntosh and Major Dave Stone have taken part in a very different act of remembrance. While visiting Malta, they carried out a dive to the wreck of HMS Maori and attached a Royal British Legion Memorial Cross to the ship.

HMS Maori was a Tribal-class Destroyer in theMediterranean fleet. She was sunk in February 1942 by enemy aircraft.   

Captain McIntosh said: "During the course of my 24 year career I have attended many acts of remembrance but this was very different. It was a real privilege and an honour to be involved."
