I am trying to trace Paul Richardson or Richards, who I knew at Tal Handaq at sometime between 1962-1964. I was a pupli in 5C and I think Paul was in 5B or 5A. I lived at Egmont Close, Depiro St.,Sliema, I think Paul also lived in Sliema, I think his hometown in the UK was Plymouth.Can anyone help me please?

Regards

Tony Moor

[Admin reply - I knew a Paul Richardson who lived next door to me in Tigne St, around 1963. He had been to sea as a deckhand I think before going back to school for a year at TH. Our parents were very friendly but sadly lost touch. Let me know if you find him Tony. Regards, Martin (THN admin)].

Came across this when looking at another site, brought back memories from using Robb Lido as a child when we lived on the island, I went to SCS Luqa along with my younger brother from 1975 to 1978 (I was 8 in '75) as my dad was posted to TASF RAF Luqa. Would love to catch up with anyone who was there at the same time.

(Admin reply - Welcome Kevin, make good use of the search button to find names and places.

There are also two Facebook groups for RAF Malta that mention Luqa school but not one for the school itself.)

Just came across this Forum and it was a real trip down memory lane.

If anyone who remembers me (your memory might be better than mine) from those long ago and youthful days, wants to get in touch, please do! Great memories of Tal Handaq and Malta.

For those curious I went on to become an artist / designer for a while and these days my home is in Japan.

(Admin reply - there are two Facebook groups as well Stephen. If you would like to be added to the contacts list Viv Daly can also put you in touch with others - viv@dmeventservices.co.uk).

I have wonderful memories of Tal Handaq although I was only there for 1 year, it was one of the best school years in my life. It would be great to link up with some old friends .

(Admin reply - Hello David, I will forward your note to Viv Daly who keeps the past-pupil database. You can also contact her at Viv@dmeventservices.co.uk if you wish to contact anyone she has listed (she can send you the list) or at least pass on your email to them if they have not all agreed for theirs to be released.

There are two TH facebook groups and also a page linked to THNostalgia if you are on FB).

I'm sending this on behalf of my brother (Graham Derrick) who was at TH from the summer of '54 until late '55 when he returned to Blighty to join an Army Junior Leaders Regiment. He was in the Modern stream - Forms 2C, 3C and 3B. He's not online but I can convey messages. I know he would be delighted to hear from anyone who may remember him.

Names that he recalls include: Alan Peyton, Arthur Wilson, James Brown, Ray Ball, Colin Glass, Fred Caunter, Maurice Perrin, Robert Dungey, Wilf Hart, "Robert E" Lee, Jean Reid, Phyllis Rawlins, Jean White, Viv White, Juliette Neave, Joan Helen. What a memory!!

I've had comments printed on this site before, I was in 1DG in '56/'57 (formerly at St Andrews)

Bernard Derrick

Admin reply - if you are on Facebook Bernard there are two TH groups you can join. Also if you email Viv Daly who keeps the database she will say whether she has any of those folk on file - some even with emails - - Viv@dmeventservices.co.uk . (Whilst writing were either of you at Verdala? New FB group started).

Does anyone know of the the contact details of John Hughes at all? He was my form master in 1974/75 at Tal Handaq and we wrote to each other for a number of years. I lost contact when he was teaching in Germany.

I would love to get in contact.

Cheers
