Faith, Hope & Charity - The Legend Revisited

Notre Dame Gate

Sun Oct 15th 2017 at 10:30 until 13:30
Malta, St. Edward's Street, Vittoriosa

Event Details

As part of the Heritage and History Book Fair, Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna is pleased to invite you to the following public talk in English by Richard J. Caruana. This public event is being held on Sunday 15th of October at 10.30 am at the Cantina Nicolo, Notre Dame Gate, St. Edward’s Street, Vittoriosa.

The story of three obsolete biplanes that faced vastly larger enemy planes during the first months of the Second World War in the skies over Malta became a legend in its own time. Moreover the population of an island on the brink of annihilation found inspiration and hope in a romanticized version of the story intended as a morale booster.

Maltese and foreign historians started to put the operational history of that small band of Gloster Sea Gladiators into perspective over several decades. What emerged was the story of men and machines expected to serve with limited means and formed but the prelude to what later was described by most pilots operating from Malta as 'blood, sweat and tears'.

Aviation artist and historian Richard J. Caruana traces the true story, devoid of sensationalism through documented sources that have provided us with a down-to-earth narrative, though one which in no way diminishes the exploits of those planes and their brave pilots.

And then there is the question of who coined the names of Faith, Hope and Charity, when and why. Join us for this presentation and find out.

Entrance for this event is free but pre-booking is advisable to secure a seat. Bookings can be made by sending an email to gabriel@wirtartna.org

Refreshments will be available throughout the day
