Malta Reunion 2021

posted 5 Feb 2021, 01:44 by Pat Scott
It is with great regret that I have to advise you that the 2021 Malta Reunion will not be going ahead.  The situation with Covid 19 has not improved and even though the vaccine is being rolled out it will be some time before it affects the rate of infection, we do not believe that it will not be safe to travel by April.  It is possible that if the situation improves perhaps we might organise something for later in the year.

Peter Robinson, the Malta Branch Chairman, has said that he has not made a decision yet on whether the Siege Bell ceremony will be able to go ahead.  We hope very much that it can and wish Peter good luck.

Our Association President, Judge Joseph Galea Debono, sends us this message:

It is with great regret that I note that the Annual Reunion of the George Cross Island Association will not be held again this coming April because of the Covid19 situation worldwide which makes travel very problematic.
However I fully understand and appreciate the valid reasons why this decision has been taken by U.K. Branch.

It is my sincere hope that we can however meet again in April, 2022 to commemorate the 80th. Anniversary of the award of the George Cross to the Maltese Islands when I hope even the Authorities will participate in making this Anniversary an event to be remembered."
