Comment: The story of Malta is absolutely fascinating. The courage of soldier and civilian alike is immense. I've read a number of books on the topic, including Ernle Bradfords Siege: Malta. One thing absent from everything I've read or seen are detailed descriptions or maps of the military installations on the island such as the Kalafrana seaplane base or the 'Y' Service installation at Fort Rinella. Even aerial photos of these sites ( even modern photos ) would go a long way to clarifying the physical

Comment: This is a great historical collection and I intend to explore it thoroughly. I served in HMS Sirius in Force H in the Med 1943-44. We took on stores and ammunition in Malta prior to the Salerno landing. I much enjoyed a short visit to Valletta and met some wonderful people. This website brought back many memories, both happy and sad.

Cheers!

Comment: As a newly entered HM Docyard apprentice in
January 1941, I lived through the hellish times
of bombs, shortages of nearly everything,
including food.It seems to be a long time ago
now, but surely the sufferings cannot easily
be forgotten. May they never be back.

Comment: signing on behalf of my father Henry Thrupp or H to his pals. He bought me to Malta in 1979 to see where he was during the war he was gunner and I know how hard it was for the maltese people and how they went without food for so long. I have now been to malta twice with a further holiday coming up soon Malta is a beautiful place and the maltese people are very genuine people. What a great web site I a sure I will visit it often.

I now realize, after living on this earth for 41 years, that the survival of my parents was hanging by a thread. Thank God, for the service men and women of Malta.

Comment: This is a very emotional Web-Site which every Maltese native should view, especially those of us born after the war. This brings memories of what my parents describe and the sufferings they endured, so that we can enjoy freedom and peace.
Great job on a very historical, nostalgic and technically-perfect Web-Site.
God bless the surviving servicemen and women, and the British soldiers who defended us during those turbulent years.

Although HMS. Vengeance was back and forth between Malta and Gibraltar during March to May 1945, both her Squadron's, No. 1850 and No. 812 were both based at HalFar for the whole period of time.

Comment: My Father, Peter Young, was a Radio Officer on board "Melbourne Star" during the 1942 Malta Convoy. He kept a detailed diary from rejoining on July 28, 1942 through to a cable congratulating the Captain on becoming the first Merchant Captain to be awarded the Distinguished Service Order. My daughters and I are visiting Malta the beginning of May (unfortunately only for a day) and we are looking forward to seeing the island my Father spoke of so fondly over the years.

Comment: In 1944 we flew out to the Far East and spent the 1st night at Luqa where my revolver was stolen in the mess and I reported it to the SP's.When demobilized I was again asked "Where is your revolver?" It was never found to my knowledge and I guess I was charged for it. That was a long time ago, but I well remember the goats there.Of no real importance but I shall always associate my revolver with Malta.
