Tal-Ħandaq Nostalgia

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

HMS Ausonia & Manoel Is. 1959/60

Other ships are HMS Dainty, parts of HMS Anzio & LST Charles McLeod and a lonely HMS Eastbourne in Sliema Creek. On the island is part of the Leper Hospital, beyond that the Base Supply Office, Fort Manoel, the Diving Centre and Comms Training Centre. To the left of the football pitches is the Canteen (Cinema), in front of which are the tennis courts/roller skating rink of blessed memory.
What a lot of nostalgia!

You can even see the original kiosk at the Ferry and the sloping roof of the Plaza Cinema.

Lived in the block of flats to the left of the Tigne barrack blocks, remember the days when the ships were nose to tail filling the creek.yet again "oh happy days".

That was my whole world then 1958.59.60. The Plaza was nice too, much better than the bug hutch and the flea pit (The Majestic & Carlton). Oh, to live those days again!

I remember watching the Ausonia leave Malta in 1964 from Upper Barrakka gardens. I have a short 8mm film clip of the event. My Mum and I were in the company of our neighbour whose husband was aboard the ship
