Outside 'A' or 'C' Block 1980 741 viewsThis picture was taken outside our old flat in the barracks at Tigne. I cannot remember if it was 'A' or 'C' block - it was right next to the slipway to the boathouse! My brother will correct me. Tigne remained much as it was in the sixties in 1980 - prior to any development. The Army buildings were occupied by Chinese Dock workers when this photo was taken, I recall the Maltese put them there as cheap accommodation..2 commentsNick Robinson

"The low-rise scheme includes a Mediterranean style village situated in a fully car free zone, just seconds from a yacht marina which is currently being enlarged to berth some 420 boats. The master plan includes a waterfront casino, a host of cultural, leisure and sports facilities, marina-related commercial spaces and a walkway to the old Lazaretto and the Fort"Prefect
