"Dammit, man, we usually do this sort of thing on the grass," said the Wing Commander to Patrick Gibbs when he crash-landed his Beaufort torpedo bomber, heavily damaged after attacking the Italian battleship Littorio, and temporarily blocked the much-needed runway at Malta. It was June 1942 and the island was the key to the Mediterranean war theatre, controlling the flow of supplies to both sides. The heroic defence of Malta was dependent on the fighters who warded off the Axis bombers, and the Beauforts that attacked their supply ships. Patrick Gibbs was an outstandingly brave commander of the latter, with a shrewd grasp of both their tactical deployment and strategic importance.

Beware bouts of severe indigestion. That was the reason given by Rosenblatt Solicitors, the disappointed sponsor of this St John's, Smith Square recital, for Decca's much-promoted Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja's non-appearance on Monday. Maybe they have bank holidays in Malta, too.
