The Armed Forces of Malta is celebrating its 50th anniversary today following its inauguration on April 19th 1973, when the ‘Malta Land Force’ changed its name and became known as the ‘Armed Forces of Malta’. 150 AFM personnel will be taking part in a parade in Valletta this evening to commemorate this important milestone in the history of the armed forces. A Guard of Honour accompanied by the AFM band will be leaving Valletta entrance, reach St George’s square to take part in a special display for the anniversary celebrations. A series of fly pasts including all types in the airwing’s inventory are also planned to take place over St George’s Square.
MAR would like to personally thank each and every member of our Armed Forces for the work they do for all Maltese citizens as well as thank them for all the photographic opportunities they made possible for us throughout all these years.
