Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671554 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!

Old Royal Navy Canteen Gzira647 viewsDuring my service time serving in Malta it was the Britannia Bar. About three or four years ago it was renamed the Jubilee Café. Although on initial entry it looks dark and gloomy, well worth a visit. Bursting with bric-a-brac, it even has things hanging off the ceiling upside down such as a table and chairs fully laid out for service – the food is good too!

See it as it was.

Barracca Lift Top527 viewsThe upper point the lift arrived at. Two lifts were provided, each capable of carrying 12 passengers, rising through 75 tons of steelwork vertically 167 feet 7 inches, with the winding gear housed in a turret even higher at 197 feet, to a lateral bridge, extending some 23 feet out from the bastion gardens.
