Tal-Ħandaq Nostalgia

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


The Freedom Monument

From the front the figures of this monument outside St Lawrence's Church in Vittoriosa sadly disappear among the foliage!

I could never quite understand why this should symbolise freedom. Malta rightly gained her independence in 1964 and thereafter the continued presence of British military establishments was a matter of financial negotiation. The bluff was first called in 1972 and finally seen in 1979. I suppose the answer is a seven letter name beginning with M. But we mustnt get political .......

I agree, it doesn't really seem a very appropriate name does it! Perhaps it just made someone feel better!
