MEMORJA.jpg
Malta National Archives Memory Project403 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
