MALTA ‘UMBRELLA’S ’BARRAGE WHICH FOILED AXIS RAIDERS Taken during M alta’s 243rd air raid, in June, 1941. this photograph reveals one of the island’s most potent defences— a tremendous barrage of A .A .shell which boxed in German or Italian bombers as they strove to penetrate to vital points. Bursts of smoke from scores of projectiles can be seen in the sky. Rising to a climax of fury at intervals, the raids went on day by day, and averaged two per twenty-four hours.
