About Us

Through this website we aim to help maintain and provide an historical and educational resource for future generations, as well as to be a focal point to bring together all our members and interested parties. 

Within our branches in the UK and in Malta many of our members have relatives who took part in the Pedestal Convoy or who served in Malta or were in Malta during WWII and afterwards; they share with us their memories and experiences and take part in the various commemorative events we organise each year.  All are welcomed at our events whether they have any military background or not and including non-members of the GCIA.

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 you will find these on the branch pages of this site.

More information about the GCIA can be found on the page tabs across the top, and also information about upcoming events, photographs of past events and a membership form.  All our members receive a quarterly newsletter which gives information on upcoming events, past events and include contributions from members.
