MALTESE CASUALTIES DURING WORLD WAR II

 

When Benito Mussolini, the Fascist Dictator of Italy, announced his decision to ally Italy with Germany and issued the declaration of war at 6 p.m. on 10th June 1940, the island of Malta was thrust into the front line of the Second World War. The first air raid on Malta by the Italian Regia Aeronautica took place at 06.25 the next morning.

 

Until 16th January 1941 all the air attacks were made by the Italian Regia Aeronautica, but that day the German Luftwaffe carried out its first attack on Malta and continued to do so.

 

Since the first air raid alert on 11th June 1940 until the last one on 28th August 1944, there were 3,340 alerts totalling 2357 hours. However, the peak period was the first half of 1942 with 263 alerts in January, 236 in February, 275 in March, 282 in April, 246 in May and 169 in June. The last air raid alert was sounded on 28th August 1944, but since October 1943 there had only been eight alerts.

 

By April 1942 the number of houses destroyed or damaged were estimated as, 85% in Floriana, 80% in Senglea, 75% in Kirkop, 75% in Valletta, 70% in Luqa, 70% in Cospicua, 70% Kalkara, 65% Vittoriosa, and 60% Gzira. Most inhabitants of these areas therefore had to find accommodation in the villages and towns elsewhere on the island.

 

From 11th June 1940 until 31st December 1943 the civilian casualties were: Killed outright 1190: Died of their wounds 296: Missing presumed dead 54: Seriously injured 1846: Slightly injured 1932. Of the 1540 dead, 703 were Men, 433 were Women and 404 were Children.

 

On 15th April 1942 His Majesty King George VI sent a message to Governor Dobbie which read:

 

 

However, due to the continual air raids and security situation on the island a public ceremony could not be held until Sunday 13th September 1942, when Governor Gort VC who had replaced Governor Dobbie made the presentation in Palace Square.

 

The George Cross was handed over to Sir George Borg, the Chief Justice of Malta. After being on display in Valletta the award was taken around Malta. It was on show for a day in most of the towns and villages so that everyone had the opportunity to see it.

 

 

King George VI himself paid a brief visit to the island on 20th June 1943. He arrived on board HMS Aurora in Grand Harbour just after eight o'clock in the morning. He went to the Naval Dockyard and Senglea, before being taken on a tour to show him the devastation inflicted by the air raids on other towns and villages. He also visited the Royal Air Force airfields before re-embarking on HMS Aurora that night.

FLORIANA

Shortly before 8 o'clock on the morning of 28th April 1942 the church of St. Publius in Floriana was hit by several bombs. The dome and the portico were wrecked, and walls were damaged. The crypt beneath the church was used as a shelter, but the amount and weight of falling masonry caused the crypt roof to collapse trapping those who where sheltering inside. Many were injured and taken to hospital, but a number of people lost their lives.

GOZO

Marcel Theuma was the skipper of the schooner Marie Georgette, which was sailing from Malta to Gozo with passengers on the 29th December 1941 when it was machine gunned by a German fighter aircraft. He managed to beach the blazing vessel before being mortally wounded by the aircraft during a second attack. Two other crewmen were also killed. In general life on Gozo was not so austere or so dangerous as on Malta. They only had occasional attacks by the enemy. However, on the 10th October 1942, two Ju.88 bombers were pursued by RAF Spitfires and flew over Gozo. They released their bombs on the village of Sannat, causing the deaths of eighteen inhabitants and badly injuring another thirty-five.

Photos supplied by Denis Darmanin from his collection

The residents of Rinella Street used a store with a reinforced concrete roof as a shelter. On 24th March 1942 at about 4.25 p.m. it received a direct hit by a bomb and with one exception all those inside the shelter were killed. Victor Hili, aged seven years, was injured but rescued from the wreckage, his mother, two sisters and younger brother were among the dead. In the same raid members of the Coster family died in their private shelter, when their house collapsed on top of them, and a gas pipe was fractured.

LUQA

 

The shelter in Pope Innocent Street was below ground but not ideal since water seeped in, but nevertheless had to be used. About midday on the 9th April 1942, German Ju.87 Stuka dive bombers attacked the village damaging several houses and the Parish Church of St. Andrew. One bomb landed in a disused well alongside the shelter, and when it exploded not only were the stones from the narrow separating wall blasted into the shelter but water came in as well. Twenty-three of the thirty people taking refuge there were killed. When the news reached Governor Dobbie he immediately went to Luqa to see for himself the scale of the disaster.

MOSTA

 

A large number of German Ju.88 bombers attacked throughout the 21st March 1942, so many inhabitants spent much time in the shelters. About 2.45 p.m. two bombs landed in Gafa Street, Mosta, one at the entrance and the other at the emergency exit of the shelter there. The explosions and blast killed many of the people within. Of the Vella family, the father and two sons lost their lives, but their mother Mrs. Giovanna Vella survived.

MQABBA

 

A German bombing attack on Mqabba started at 12.45 on 9th April 1942, and lasted until 13.00 hours. Unfortunately some villagers left it too late to get to the shelter and were killed in the streets. A stretcher party from 'D' Company The Hampshire Regiment was nearby and rushed to the scene but there were no injured, only the dead. The Parish Priest was in the Church Tower when the raid began and although a bomb went straight through the church which stopped the clock exactly at 13.00 he managed to get down to the ground unscathed.

 

MQABBA NAZI QUARTER OF AN HOUR

 

'A quarter to one; you can hear the clock chime.

We're proud of the clock and we love the old church.

It is glorious spring and we look at the time

Though the weird banshee wails and we hear the Hun search.

 

The drone of the planes and the rushing of wind!

The thunder! the lightning! The tall buildings lurch.

Bomb dust and bricks! (O God, have we sinned ?)

The debris, the craters, the hole in the church.

 

The ruin of homes, the stone and the dead.

The paintings of saints and the priest in his frock.

The clock tower intact, though its heart must have bled,

For its pulse beats no more, and it stares-one o'clock.'

 

by Major George R. Hogan, 1st Battalion, The Hampshire Regiment

QORMI

On Sunday night 3rd November 1940 a fully bomb and fuel laden Wellington aircraft took off from Luqa airfield destined for a raid on Naples. However, immediately after take off it failed to gain height and crashed onto the village of Qormi killing Alfred and Dolores Agius. After October 1942 the number of air raid alerts fell to single or double figures, so it came as some surprise when a large scale air attack took place on 20th July 1943 on several targets and ten inhabitants of Qormi lost their lives.

SENGLEA

The Aircraft Carrier HMS Illustrious was used to protect the Convoy 'Excess' to Malta in January 1941, but was badly damaged by German aircraft attacks. In fact she was hit six times, 126 members of her crew were killed and 91 injured. The crippled carrier headed for Malta and arrived on the 10th January. Work began round the clock to repair the damaged ship, and there was a lull in air attacks. However, during the afternoon of the 16th January a combined Italian and German air raid comprising seventeen Ju.88 bombers accompanied by twenty Me.110 fighters, and forty-four Ju.87 Stuka dive bombers escorted by twenty Mc.200's and ten Cr.42's arrived to carry out a blitz on Malta. The aircraft carrier was reasonably well protected so it was the civilian dockyard areas, of Senglea and Vittoriosa which bore the brunt of the attack, hence the list of fatalities below and at Vittoriosa. The church of Our Lady of Victories was very badly damaged on the 16th and completely destroyed on the 19th. On the 23rd January HMS Illustrious left Malta for Alexandria and then onto the U.S.A. for major repairs.

VALLETTA

 

Air raid alerts several times a day were the norm, but on 15th February 1942, out of twenty-four hours almost twenty hours were spent under alert. During the second raid of the day in late afternoon a German aircraft dropped three bombs in Kingsway, Valletta. One hit the Governor's Palace, the second the Casino Maltese, and the third the Regent Cinema, which collapsed burying the audience. Fifteen civilians and twenty-six servicemen were killed.
