Tal-Ħandaq Nostalgia

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

Battle scar

"Sergeant Gordon Tweedale of 185 Squadron [was] shot down and killed in his first sortie in a Spitfire. Tweedale’s Spitfire ... crashed in Lija ... . The scarred wall of a building on the corner of Saviour Street, damaged by the Spitfire in the final moments of its terminal dive, remains a poignant reminder... ."
Text from Air Battle for Malta by Anthony Rogers, published by Greenhill Books, c/o Pen & Sword Books Ltd.
