From the spring of 1915, the hospitals and convalescent depots established on the islands of Malta and Gozo dealt with over 135,000 sick and wounded, chiefly from the campaigns in Gallipoli and Salonika, although increased submarine activity in the Mediterranean meant that fewer hospital ships were sent to the island from May 1917.
In the left hand corner, at the back of the Casal Zebbug Church, there is a door leading down a flight of steps. Down the first flight, on the left hand side, there is a marble memorial inserted into the wall commemorating a Maltese artilleryman of the First World War, who is buried in the ossuary beneath the church.
