Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671411 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!

The Dockyard Clock584 viewsSt Michael Cavalier, Senglea.
The Cavalier was demolished in 1923 to make way for a new school called St Michael’s Cavalier Public School. This was destroyed by bombing in WW2 and rebuilt to a different design on the same site overlooking No.3 Dock. The Cavalier stood on St Michael Bastion where apart from the Dockyard Clock, the Admiralty has its offices, a recreation hall, tennis courts and the Dockyard School.
