Exhibition marks departure of British forces from Malta

A curated exhibition by Heritage Malta marking the 40th anniversary since the departure of British military forces from Malta on March 31, 1979 – entitled Behind Closed Doors: Fort St Angelo and the Royal Navy 1906-1979 – will be on display at Fort St Angelo, Vittoriosa, from tomorrow.

The exhibition portrays life in Fort St Angelo during its occupation by the Admiralty and sheds light on the different roles of the fort and the services it offered to the Royal Navy and its staff. 

Visitors will also view the numerous architectural modifications and why the fort was referred to as HMS Egmont and eventually HMS St Angelo. The guides will include former service personnel who worked at the fort.

The exhibition is open until September 8. Admission is included in the museum’s regular ticket price. For details visit http://heritagemalta .org/museums-sites/fort-st-angelo.
