DVD OF PILGRIMAGE TO MALTA AND TRIPOLI
It has taken a long time but the DVD produced by John Mizzi and his Maltese documentary team is available at last. It is of a high quality and is deeply moving. Most of the video footage is taken in Malta and includes a speech by the President of Malta when he unveiled a commemorative plaque for Neptune and Kandahar in the Malta Maritime Museum; a joint service with the George Cross Island Association; visits to the Siege Bell memorial, the War Museum and to the Naval War cemetery. There are 14 interviews with relatives of casualties who describe their personal Neptune connections and these are beautifully woven into the story of the pilgrimage.
DVD of PILGRIMAGE - still photographs
A DVD has been assembled by Robin Clayton (son-in-law of Sergeant William Crocker RM - Neptune casualty), containing 150 still photos of the remembrance journey submitted by members. It was shown at the Plymouth meeting in May to general acclaim. It has not got a sound track but the photos show the whole remembrance journey - the three days in Malta; the three days in Tripoli with the visit to the War graves cemetery, the boat journey to the wreck site, and the visits to Leptis Magna and Sabratha; and finally the return to Malta with the ceremony in the Malta Maritime Museum. A chart is included showing Force K's passage into the minefield and the wreck site where Neptune is believed to lie.
