When Robert Jones first opened the site in 1994 he couldn’t have imagined that it would ever attract so many members and so much interest as it has generated. Sadly Robert passed away unexpectedly in 1918. he made us promise we would continue the running of the site in his name and uphold its good name this we promised to do. Colin and I don't have the expert knowledge in running the site but we will prod along as best we can to uphold its name.

Most of the Maltese language originates from Ancient Arabic (Eastern Libyan Dialect) of the Berber or Amazigh Tribes. -Therefore many of their words are arabic "GHARRY"or "GHARRI" though, is neither Maltese or Arabic ! - It is "borrowed" from the Hindu गाड़ी Indian, gāṛī, wheeled cart, carriage & originates sorely from our British colonial ancestors, who rode the same vehicle in India.- The word was easily adopted by the Maltese, being much simpler than their own word. - Used in many other colonies including India, South Africa & Rhodesia - It means (as already stated) a small singular horsed covered carriage for two, with one axle.
Yours `Aye
