In the 1920s Valletta was the location of the Royal Navy’s Mediterranean Fleet’s headquarters. Prepared on the island, this map of Malta has a grid over-printed in red that shows key features including railways, civil telephone lines and offices, aqueducts and water tanks (‘brackish’ and ‘potable’). Revised to January 1923, and based on the 1910 War Office map, it is GSGS sheet no. 2430, but was advertised as available for public purchase from Stanford’s, Sifton Praed and others.
