Irene Brown's birthday party1027 viewsTaken on the roof of RN married quarters: Marshall Court, Gzira in 1957.
In back row there are the Gay twins, and 4th from right is my brother John Holmes.
Kneeling on the left is Irene Brown and on the extreme right is her sister Carol Brown.
Does anyone know the others? All pupils at Tal Handaq except the chap 2nd from right at the back,
think his name may be Jim. Believe he was older and came to Malta to see his parents.
