il-Wasla tal George Cross fil-Marsa
16 October, 2022 - 17 October, 2022
On the 16th of October, a series of events will commemorate and explore the award of the George Cross to Malta in 1942. The official ceremony held in Valletta in September 80 years ago will not be the main focus. Rather, the events will focus on the George Cross’ forgotten afterlife when it toured every town and village for the people of Malta to witness up close. The public attending will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Exhibition of the George Cross in Marsa, in the same location as it did in 1942. This interactive reenactment in the Marsa Main Square, will feature a cheerful atmosphere with music and an authentic setting which should entice the entire family. Other activities include: Malta-related militaria exhibition Original Military vehicles convoys Static military vehicles Opening of ww2 shelter Historical tours around Marsa
