Dynasafe BACTEC are extremely proud to be supporting a new memorial plaque being erected in Malta. The plaque, which commemorates the sections actions during WWII and recognises the continued efforts of Explosive Ordnance Disposal professionals today will be installed as part of the 75th anniversary of the Island being awarded the George Cross.
From 1940 to 1942, Malta was subjected to constant heavy bombardment. The Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal Sections, totalling just two officers and 30 men, dealt with over 7,300 items of unexploded ordnance.
To recognise the achievements of this team, and also the continued work of dealing with large numbers of UXO after the war until the late 1970s, a marble plaque is to be installed at Upper Barrakka Gardens: a dramatic viewpoint overlooking Grand Harbour in Valletta, Malta and one of the most heavily bombed locations on the Island. HM The Queen, as Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Engineers, has commended to plaque project.
The plaque will be unveiled on 13th September as part of Malta’s events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the presentation of the George Cross to the Island.
Dynasafe BACTEC appreciate the difficulty and danger associated with UXO clearance tasks, so we are delighted that the Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal Section has been recognised by The Queen for all its vital work.
