13 pictures from the new Knights of Malta during the Troubles exhibition in Derry

A new exhibition focusing on the incredible and often overlooked role played by the Knights of Malta during the Troubles has been unveiled as part of 51st Bloody Sunday programme.

The exhibition opened on Monday night at the Museum of Free Derry in Glenfada Park and has been organised as part of the Bloody Sunday Trust commemorations following the publication of a novel by talented Derry author Jude Morrow entitled The Ghosts of Riots Past. The book presents the troubled conflict in Derry through the eyes of a young, female volunteer first-aider in the Order of Malta Ambulance Corps.

The exhibition will run until the end of February.
