Tal-Ħandaq Nostalgia

Memories of the Royal Naval School, Malta, 1947 - 1978.

The Freedom Monument from the back.

Silhouetted against the sky over Dockyard Creek, the monument depicts the farewell to the last British sailor to leave when the island gained its independence. (Date please someone!)

31 March 1979. But Independence came in 1964. Super photo.

Thanks - I thought it was '79 but wasn't certain! Independence in '64, yes of course, but it was after my time!
