With all due respect to Admin (who appears to have edited the final part of my last message), if you search on "Pit" you will not find the file to which I refer. Instead, search on "Barracca" and it will appear as the first file. I have just done this and it works.

From admin - Apologies for the editing Ivan. You will now ! (You didn't mention that photo by name in your unedited message, only a reference to Before our Tme. I was also pointing out the photos of the Pit).

Message for Sonia Aldworth. If you paste coordinates 35.895238, 14.511657 into the Google Maps Search field it will take you straight to the location of the entrance of what was The Pit. Drag the little Streetview man into the map and various photo locations are shown in that area. There are old photos and some remarks about the Pit in the mid-60s - search on Pit with the search button (left hand menu in THN Gallery).

Admin's reply - the Pit is under the Stock Exchange building. See http://www.talhandaqnostalgia.org/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=5465

I am seeking information on the British Scout / Cub Group at Verdala. I have a name tape, blue on white which says 'SERVICES SCHOOL VERDALA' . I presume this dates from after 1969 when they came under one Services educational umbrella instead of the Royal Navy. Any information of this and the Scout troop at 1st Luqa (Home) and other British Scouting in Malta would be gratefully received. Thank you.

I am trying to get a contact email for Robbie Ross (at Tal Handaq 63 to 69) for my brother Pete Record who was at Verdala with Robbie. I met Robbie recently at the school reunion and forgot to ask him for his contact details.

Many thanks

Julie Record (now Horner)

Message from Sonia & Roy Aldworth -

Roy and II have just returned from a nostalgic holiday to Malta. We visited the new school and were invited inside. We visited some of our old haunts e.g. Eros and Qui si Sana in Sliema (no longer recognisable). However we could not locate the site of The Pit in Valetta. Do you know if anyone knows what happened to The Pit?
Thank you
Regards, Sonia.

Admin's reply - The Pit is due to open soon as a museum for the Saluting Battery at Baracca (gun fired noon & 4pm each day).

Remember with enormous pleasure my one year at Tal-Handaq. The rugby, the running but most of all Tigne Beach and St pPeter's Pool (now accessible by car I see!). I remember only a few names from my time ther, Melanie Lusty, Jeanette Taylor and Johnny Pasmore (briefly in touch with Johnny but lost touch when he retired). Also remember a Michael but forgot his surname (sorry Mike) and Lorna Tierny. Anybody want to get in touch by e-mail you'll be welcome. Was a great place with many great people.
