Biography/Interests/Remarks I lived at Tigne for three years, from the ages 6 -9. My father was in the Army. My four siblings and I, had a great time growing up in this safe environment. I particularly remember myself, David (a year older) and Nigel (a year younger), swimming across the bay to St Angelos, dragging our two year old sister Lynn along (who could hardly swim). At one stage we had to wait for a Frigate to go by...My elder brother Michael did attend Tal-Handaq, leaving in 1966 as a 16 year old. He may well have some photographs. David had recently joined your site. I have some photos to put on. I have really enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading the comments. Many thanks

06/07/13 at 04:48Funnily enough I came across a pic with a Malta link on Friends Reunited - it was a teacher called Mr Morris commenting on a pic of his UK class taken in 1964 that he had to leave them to go and teach in an Army School in Malta! Sounds like him I would say...
