The Three Sieges of Malta

  • By the Turks in 1565
  • By the Axis Powers during WWII
  • By BBC swimmers in 2014
  1. Jon Attwater will dwell briefly on the fascinating history of The Knights of St John and the Great Siege of 1565
  2. A short film “Malta GC” will be shown on our new screen. This film of 20 minutes duration was made in 1943 at the request of King George VI to record what happened in Malta during WWII. This rare footage was retrieved from the archives of the Imperial War Museum in London in 2005.
  3. Finally, from Jack Stening, a short talk accompanied with some dramatic photographs on the recent BBC swim in Malta.

As this will be the last meeting for the year we will conclude with a few drinks (byo of course) to start getting into the Christmas spirit.
