This week we have the concluding part of Bob Horner’s talk Malta George Cross 1940-42 - The Battle for Survival.

During World War II, Malta played an important role owing to its proximity to Axis shipping lanes. The bravery of the Maltese people during the second Siege of Malta moved King George VI to award the George Cross to Malta on a collective basis on 15 April 1942 "to bear witness to a heroism and devotion that will long be famous in history.

Last week Bob left us at the start of 1942, a very dark time for the survival of Malta. He now continues with the story of one of the most pivotal moments during the resupply of Malta, Operation Pedestal.
