The defence of Malta in February 1941

Apparently, Malta's defences in February 1941 included:
  • 8 infantry battalions plus the King's Own Malta Regiment
  • Two field batteries, Royal Artillery
  • One beach defence regiment, Royal Artillery, armed with 3.7in howitzers, 6in howitzers, and 18pdrs.
  • One Royal Tank Regiment troop with 2 light tanks and four infantry tanks (presumably Inf. Mk.II Matilda)
This is from Vol.II of the official history of the war in the Mediterranean and Middle East.
