Australia Hall, Pembroke.561 viewsThe Australia Hall was opened in 1915 for the benefit of the servicemen stationed at Pembroke Barracks. It was erected by the Australian Branch of the British Red Cross Society. The Australia Hall lasted well but closed down in the mid 1990's. A fire destroyed the barrel vaulted roof circa 2000 but the sturdy stone walls survive intact.

Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671443 viewsI am sure that this was the Dunera cruise of early 1967. I was in 3B at the time and this is a scan (took a while to get it down to 250kb!) of a picture that appeared in the Times of Malta.
I cannot name a soul, (apart from me of course! Front row,4 along with head at jaunty angle, book in hand and OMG turn ups!) So if anyone can fill in those names: go for it!
