On This Day 503 viewsLt George Carroll - Hero of Mosta - died 23 May 2012

Lt Carroll (pictured left) is believed to have been responsible for tackling more unexploded bombs than any other Royal Engineers bomb disposal officer in World War II, across all theatres of war.

Remarkably, he was the only bomb disposal officer from the Army, Navy and Air Force active during the siege of Malta not to be decorated, though this did not bother him.

RFA Retainer 1955502 viewsArriving in Malta for the first time after conversion from a cargo/passenger ship to Ammunition Replenishment.
She caused something of a stir by being the first RFA with draught beer and retaining a sprung dance floor!
There is still a bar down the Gut sporting her name.
