about this item

During the first four years of World War II, Churchill and his military advisers were constantly concerned with the defense and sustenance of Malta. From June 11, 1940, the island, only 60 miles from Italian and German airfields in Sicily, suffered intense air attack, but Churchill refused to consider its abandonment. He ordered that every effort be made to provide the supplies needed to maintain a base from which Rommel's supply convoys to North Africa, and other enemy targets, could be attacked. Malta pulled through and made a unique contribution to Allied victory in the Mediterranean. This was recognized when King George VI awarded the George Cross to the island and its people.
