Worn on grey blazer.
In summer Girls wore blue and white gingham dress
with straw sun hat.
Anita as a Brownie
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.
I was in Nelson House (red).
My sister Virginia & I at our house in Halfar on
the edge of the aerodrome. Opposite was the
Naval Sick Bay.
