February 21, 2013

According to the Lebanon Times:

Sandhurst is renaming a hall which commemorates the fallen of a major First World War battle following a 3 million donation from the king of Bahrain.

The Mons Hall was named to honour thousands of British soldiers who died during the battle in Belgium in 1914.

But despite the 100th anniversary of the battle next year, military chiefs are changing its name to King Hamad Hall after the Bahraini ruler, who has given millions to Sandhurst.
