Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. Using the tabbed links across the top you can read about our association - past, present and future; there is a little background history on the Siege of Malta 1940 to 1943; some pages have photos and there is a gallery page with lots of photos taken during our events; for anyone interest in joining us, there is a membership form.
What is The George Cross Island Association?
The association came into being to commemorate and bring together veterans and families of the Siege of Malta (1940 to 1943). We are honored to have as Patron, his Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh, KG, KT, Prince Philip who himself served in Malta.
Along with other events, the Association holds a reunion in Malta every year to commemorate the award of the George Cross and remember over 7,000 civilians and serving men who were killed during this bitter and prolonged siege. The branches (see our membership page) also hold their own commemorative events and get together regularly at social meetings.
Through this website we aim to provide an important historical and educational resource for future generations as well as to be a focal point for all our members and interested parties.
We bring together our members by accumulating and publishing as many memories and photographs as possible from them, their families and friends.
We welcome contributions from our members and from any one with an interest in, and a love of the jewel in the Mediterranean - the Island of Malta GC. Click this text to read Vivien Reck Lomax moving story of her childhood during the siege
