G. S. Dobbie will lecture on "The De-
fense of Malta" at 8 p. m. Tuesday

Faieddefender of Malta during
its two-year siege by bombing attacks
General Dobbie, accompanied by Lady
Dobbie, will come to Ann Arbor on a
lecture tour which is taking them to
principle cities of the United States
and Canada. Before arriving in Ann
Arbor he will have lectured at Wash-
ington. D. C., Moline and Chicago,
Illustrating his lecture, a factual
account of Malta during its bom-
bardment, a sound movie, "The
Message of Malta," will be shown.
The movie depicts the life of the
fpeople of Malta during the pro-
longed aerial blitz which first hit
the island in 1940 making it the
first part of the British Empire to
jexperience air attack in its most
modern form.
After an outstanding military ca-
reer throughout the South African

The most thickly populated
island of its size in the world,
Malta is entirely dependent upon
outside supplies for food and fuel,
and convoys had to fight through

the island. The island survived
the siege of two and a half years,
during which time General Dobbie

and his family experienced some
2,300 bombing attacks. King George
VI has conferred the George Cross
on the island in recognition of the
loyalty and spirit of the people as
shown during the siege.
General Dobbie was twice honored
by the British King, being made
Knight Commander of the Bath in
1941, Knight Grand Cross of St.
Michael and St. George in 1942. For
other distinguished service he was
awarded the D. S. O. and C. M. G.
and he received the Legion of Honor
of France, the Order of Leopold of
Belgium, and the French and Bel-
gian Croix de Guerre.
