Biography/Interests/Remarks I was in Malta from the ages of 1-7. My address was 10 Nadan Flats, Depiro Street, Sliema. Attended Tigne School 1957-59 where my teacher was the lovely Miss Barnett.
Don't remember any of the other kids unfortunately. My dad Bob Russon was a teacher at Tigne and my elder sister Carolyn was a pupil in his class for a while.
My most vivid memory of those days is the grounding of the Star of Malta in July 1955 which I witnessed from our flat. This is still clear as a bell in my mind's eye as if it were yesterday !
