Holiday to Malta in 2021

Wednesday 29th September 2021 - Sunday 3rd October 2021

Malta was awarded the George Cross after the sacrifice made by the Maltese people during the end of the Second World War. We will have the privilege of visiting this fascinating island, hearing about how the island gave its all during the war by visiting various museums, including seeing the George Cross letter from King George VI. We also visit the Megalithic temples at Hagar Qim, the St John’s Co-Cathedral with its Caravaggio paintings, Valletta and the fortified city of Mdina, the Maltese capital until the end of Medieval times, famed for its glass. As with all Guild holidays there will be ample opportunity to sample the excellent wines and food of the island!
Staying in the 5* AX Palace Hotel, Sliema, the tour will be accompanied by Michael Orr, Past Master Glover and military historian. Michael lectured in War Studies at the Royal Military Academy Surrey, before becoming a Senior Lecturer in the Soviet Studies Research Centre, a Ministry of Defence sponsored academic institution that studied the USSR and Warsaw Pact military systems. He is the author of a number of books, articles and chapters on the history of the British Army. He has a home in Malta and is a Trustee of Heritage Malta.

The price includes accommodation, all excursions, meals and drinks with meals, gratuities and taxes. You will book your own flights,
