MEMORJA.jpg
Malta National Archives Memory Project283 viewsI work at the National Archives of Malta, on the Memorja (National Memory) project. I am conducting oral history interviews with British ex-servicemen/women and their families, who came to Malta after WWII. I was directed towards this fantastic website, and wondered if there was anybody who would like to speak to me about their experiences of being in Malta. By after WWII I mean any decade really! It would be great to have a variety of different decades if possible.

For people who are interested my email address is sandra.blake@gov.mt. I would be happy to provide additional information on the project and be very grateful for any assistance you are able to give.

Thank you and kind regards,

Sandra Blake

Air Spies of Malta262 viewsRipping yarn set in the 40s in a school rather like Verdala. In fact a Verdala with public school boarders. Think of Biggles, Famous Five, Jennings and Boys' Own all rolled together and set in Malta.

Who was Peter Jackson? He must have known Verdala (it wasn't Peter Prictoe, I asked him).

A search on www.bookfinder.com reveals plenty of copies available. (Thanks to Chris Barber for that info). Also on ebay from time to time. Much cheaper without a dustjacket.

Things are looking UP !!554 viewsThe building of the huge 38-storey tower proposed by the Gasan Group is set to have a dramatic impact on views enjoyed by pedestrians strolling along Ghar id-Dud, the Sliema promenade, apart from breaking the skyline when viewed from as far away as Rinella Bay in Kalkara.
