SIREN STREET ------ UPPER POINT OF SENGLEA

By Edcat55
THIS HOUSE IS ON THE TOP OF THE GRAND HARBOUR BASTION

DURING WW2 AS A SIGNAL OF AN APPROACHING AIR-RAID THE SIREN WAS SOUNDED FROM THIS POINT CALLING ALL INHABITANTS TO ENTER THE TUNNELS FOR SAFE SHELTER FROM THE HEAVY BOMBINGS. Air raids throughout the war over Malta totalled 3,343. At a point, until Hurricane reinforcements were sent, the British had only three Gloster Gladiator biplanes protecting Malta, two of which were flying and one reserved for spare parts.

Very interesting piece of history. That blue cubical up there is intriguing.
