  1. Course 44: December 6, 1941 – March 27. 1942
    Wing Commander Patriarche addressed the graduates.

    “This coming year is going to be an extremely tough one and there will be a tendency all through the Empire of the people to criticize those in authority. It is being done already but I hope that you here, both airmen and visitors, will have no part in it.

    “Make sure before you criticize that you always have a suggestion better than what you are criticizing. None of the men in political or military authority is of a lower standard than the rest of us. They have to be better men or they would not have got the job.

    “You can take it for granted that those men can make just as good or better suggestions than the rest of us. Bear in mind that they have all the facts, whereas we have but a few.”

  2. Hello there friends, I very much doubt my comment is of any significance really. I was born In MALTA OCTOBER 1ST 1933. I have just read through this great historic material. I stopped to take a long look at the photograph showing your ship pulling into Harbour in 1933. So I thought that although I am not directly connected to this event I wanted to leave this brief message to let you know that I do enjoy reading all of your online reading matter since in my opinion is of much historic value.. I would love to hear from somebody if anyone is inclined to.
