hi chaps-
I have picked up an old book at a car boot sale
called "Faith , Hope and Charity" It covers the defence of malta and although a bit short ( 150 pages) and flowerey in the prose-there are some dates and details.
One really interesting piece was that they modded one of the planes later on by adding additional machine guns to the top strut in order to try to improve firepower against luftwaffe bombers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
If you want this for your upcoming campaign and live in UK pm me with your address and I will post it to you. If you just want some of the details then I will try and condense the relevent stuff and send it on - but Im a bit busy so no guarentee of a quick answer.

Sounds like a neat little book. Sometimes the best information comes out of old out of print paperbacks. I saw that one mentioned frequently in the footnotes of the chapter about the Gladiators in "Hurricanes Over Malta". Extreme_one is in the UK, but if you are willing to part with it, I will pay you back for shipping and whatever you want for it ( within reason of course) Tosssing it in a DHL envelope should do the trick.

We had to put Malta on a small hold since E_O is busy with something else right now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif but will be getting started again soon. I will send you a PM.

I'm in the UK so you could post it to me for a quick squizz and I could post it on to Jay afterwards. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
