                                                               Brownies were held after school at the Dockyard

                                                                School, Tal Handak.  Mum met me from the school

                                                                 bus in Valletta. Afterwards we had tea & Wembley ice

                                                                 cream - for a treat.

                                                                My uniform is white drill which my mother made.

                                                                (She couldn't afford the winter brown uniform).

                                                                In summer we wore straw hats, in winter - brown berets.






    At the Barracca Gardens overlooking the harbour.

   I wore this skirt for school sports day at Kalafrana.
