Malta, Circa 1878. A black and white sketch depicting the review of Indian troops on the Floriana Parade, Malta. Russia invaded the Ottoman Empire in 1877. Britain had always held that Russia should not be allowed to break out of the Black Sea, and secure Mediterranean ports. To back up the threat of intervention Indian troops were dispatched to Malta and later helped occupy Cyprus.
