Submitter's Comments:

My search seemed to suggest that Carmelo Rizzo might have been involved in the Dockyard Defence Battery, which on the 28 April 1941 were given the option of joining as regular soldiers in the Royal Malta Artillery, which he did (See photo). He might've been in the section of the 3rd Light anti-aircraft regiment of the Royal Malta Artillery.

Please proceed to Carmelo Rizzo's page for updated information and, while you're at it, visit also Carmelo Rizzo's dedicated website (created by J.V.Rizzo).   Anyone having any further info is requested to contact Joseph Victor Rizzo directly.

Submitter's Comments:

The Gun Position at Hal-Ghaxaq was close to the Hal-Far and Luqa aerodromes so was engaging the daring Junkers and Stukas. John held this post until 1943.

The 11th Battery regiment was disbanded soon afterwards and John then posted to the Royal Army Service Corps until his discharge in August, 1946.

John wishes to get in touch with ex-colleagues or their next of kin. Please refer to the photos on the attached page.
