RAF Lecture
13th February 16

A lecture about the basics of aerial combat was given by our Squadron Leader Dr. Paul Soler. This was a very interesting session which also included practical workshops and equipment demonstrations.





George Cross Commemoration
15th April 16

Still shocked by the news of the sudden passing away of Sgt. Hampton, the group kept its appointment of participating in the George Cross Ceremony Commemoration. Indeed our performance was an emotional one as Godwin was supposed to take part with us. We all wore the black band of mourning in his respect.

Our turnout and drill ended up being one of our best displays and we are sure that this was also thanks to our Sarge who was keeping a keen eye on us from up there!
In Memory of Godwin Hampton
14th April 16

It is with great sadness that the group must announce the passing away of our dear Sergeant and founding member, Godwin Hampton.

His sudden death on the 11th April 2016, leaves a void in our hearts after losing him as a friend and a great void in Maltese Military history as a great source of knowledge and inspiration to all who shared his same passion.
Winter Training Camp
20th - 21st February 16

Our much awaited KOMR Training Camp was held at Ghajn Tuffieha Scout Campsite. This year we occupied one of the recently restored barrack rooms.
This camp was a great success thanks to the help of our friend and instructor Dave who taught us the basics of fire and movement and section attacks. One must say that when you get your boots dirty its a whole different story than reading history in books. This is real living history!
Manikata Summer Camp
4th - 5th June 16

An overnight camp was held at the Manikata Pillbox just before the summer heat kicks in. Throughout the day we had lectures about the structures of an infantry unit as well as deployments in attacks and defence.

A very enjoyable barbeque followed by the latest 'Dad's Army' movie were a perfect ending to a very interesting day.
10th Anniversary Dinner
7th January 16

To kick start the year, the group held it's new year's dinner on the 7th of January. This event also celebrated the tenth anniversary of the founding of our Group. Dinner was held at Cent' Anni Restaurant which was a popular drinking hole in the wartime years for men stationed in the whereabouts of Gharghur.



Operation Pedestal Remembered
11th August 16

Malta Command has once again participated in the ceremony commemorating the arrival of the 'Santa Marija Convoy' to Malta on the 15th of August 1942, an anniversary that marks one of the greatest moments in Malta's WW2 history.

This year also marked the opening of a seafarers centre, to give shelter to any sailors during their stay in Malta, a fitting gesture of appreciation to the many men who, over the years toiled and even died on their voyage to our island.

Malta Command Summer Dinner
21st July 16

So as to keep in touch during the hot summer months, Malta Command held it's Summer get together at Ta'Bertu Restaurant in St. Paul's Bay.

This was a popular meeting place for those men who would be on leave in the area, particularly the RAF who stayed at the ex Veccja. A very enjoyable evening crowned by an excellent dinner. 


RAF Lecture
21st May 16

A very interesting lecture about the RAF uniforms worn during WW2 was prepared by our uniforms expert Colin Micallef.

This lecture covered all manners of dress and headgear worn by all ranks of the service. It was very useful for our members as there is always something new to learn in this fascinating hobby!
