Franco Cassar Francos' father was Sonny Cassar and they were the first family, of locally enlisted Maltese, to be posted to a station abroad. The family was sent to Malta and the newspaper cutting below covers this event.
Fred Hart - RAF Luqa 1967-69 I was with 39 Squadron, from Jan 1967 to Dec 1969 and loved every minute there. I am part Maltese, my Mother was a pure ‘Malt’ and Dad was a Cockney. Whilst at Luqa I worked as an Instrument Fitter General, Corporal and lived in various places, Gzira, Luqa Village and also in quarters on 2 site. Hope you enjoy the photos of 39 Squadron aircraft and other visiting aircraft, plus some from Kalafrana, etc.
