Keeping 75 squadrons of fighters, many to conduct ineffective offensive operations from Britain during 1941, was also questionable while Malta and Singapore were only defended by older, obsolete types of aircraft. Ironically the RAF's best commanders and air-warfare tacticians were in the Mediterranean area around this time achieving greater success over Malta and North Africa than their counterparts back home.

by young people between the ages of 15 and 25 for participating in several activities for a certain period. There are three awards; bronze, silver and gold. A similar award, called simply the President's Award, is available in The Gambia, Kenya, Malta, South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago. The '''striped beakfish''', ''Oplegnathus fasciatus'', also called the '''barred knifejaw''' or the '''striped beakperch''', is a tropical fish found primarily in Japanese waters, and its main habitat are coral reefs. It has been sighted twice in Malta and only once in Hawaii. Earle was the third child and youngest son of American (United States)-born parents, James Earl (Augustus later added an 'e' to the name), an artist, and his wife, Caroline Smyth, a widow with two children. He was a member of the prominent American Earle family. Earle received his artistic training in the Royal Academy and was already exhibiting there at the age of 13. Earle exhibited classical, genre and historical paintings in six Royal Academy exhibitions between 1806 and 1814. In 1815, at the age of twenty-two he obtained a passage on a storeship bound for Sicily and Malta, visiting Gibraltar and North Africa en route, before returning to England in 1817. A portfolio of drawings from this voyage is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra Despite this, the RAF fought in many battles in the Cold War period. In June 1948 the RAF commenced Operation Firedog against Malayan terrorists during the Malayan Emergency . Operations continued for the next 12 years until 1960 with aircraft flying out of RAF Tengah and RAF Butterworth. The RAF played a minor role in the Korean War, with flying boats taking part. From 1953 to 1956 the RAF Avro Lincoln squadrons carried out anti-Mau Mau operations in Kenya using its base at RAF Eastleigh. The Suez Crisis in 1956 saw a large RAF role, with aircraft operating from RAF Akrotiri and RAF Nicosia on Cyprus and RAF Luqa and RAF Hal Far on Malta as part of Operation Musketeer (Operation Musketeer (1956)). The Konfrontasi against Indonesia in the early 1960s did see use of RAF aircraft, but due to a combination of deft diplomacy and selective ignoring of certain events by both sides, it never developed into a full scale war. A near miss, only a yard or two off her port bow, during this encounter caused extensive damage. Her side ruptured and her engineering space flooded, she was towed into Palermo with five dead and 18 wounded. When the engineering space of a ship is flooded, the ship usually sinks. However, heroic action of her crew, and able assistance of several other ships who pumped water and provided electric power, kept the ''Mayrant'' floating as she crawled back to harbor. Her executive officer was later awarded the Silver Star for his action in saving the ship. His name: Franklin Roosevelt Jr. In port, mattresses were stuffed into the holes of the ships sides. In spite of her damage, the destroyer's secondary guns helped repel several Luftwaffe raids on Palermo during the next week. On 9 August, she was towed to Malta where temporary repairs were completed by 14 November. She then steamed to Charleston, South Carolina for extensive yard repairs. St. Martin's Day (''Jum San Martin'' in Maltese (Maltese language)) is celebrated in Malta on the Sunday nearest to November 11. Children are given a bag full of fruits and sweets associated with the feast, known by the Maltese (Maltese people) as ''Il-Borża ta' San Martin'', "St Martin's bag". This bag would include walnuts (Walnut#Fruit), hazelnuts, almonds, chestnuts (Chestnut#Culinary), dried or processed figs (Common fig#Cultivation and uses), seasonal fruit (like oranges (orange (fruit)), tangerines, apples and pomegranates) and "Saint Martin's bread roll (Maltese cuisine#.C4.A6ob.C5.BCa ta.27 San Martin .28Saint Martin.27s bread roll.29)" (Maltese: ''Ħobża ta' San Martin''). A feast is celebrated in the village of Baħrija on the outskirts of Rabat (Malta), including a procession led by the statue of Saint Martin. There is also a fair, and a show for local animals. San Anton School, a private school on the island, organises a walk to and from a cave especially associated with Martin in remembrance of the day. Malta STV applies for all elections in Malta. However, top-up seats (similar to the additional member system) may be added in the national parliament to ensure that a party with a majority of first-preference votes wins a majority of seats. This was a response to the controversial election in 1981 when the Nationalist Party (Nationalist Party (Malta)) won 51% of the first-preference vote but the Labour Party (Malta Labour Party) won a majority of the seats.

'''Malta''' Malta has two official languages: Maltese (Maltese language) and English (English language).

Malta's location has historically given it great strategic importance as a naval base, and a succession of powers, including the Phoenicians, Romans (Roman Empire), Moorish (Emirate of Sicily), Normans, Sicilians (Kingdom of Sicily), Habsburg Spain, Knights of St. John (Knights Hospitaller), French (First French Republic) and British (British Empire), have ruled the islands. Malta gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1964 and became a republic in 1974. Malta was admitted to the United Nations in 1964 and to the European Union in 2004; in 2008, it became part of the Eurozone.
