We were invited to visit Malta at the end of the Easter holidays. The Wallrocks have some connections with Malta; Charlie’s nephew is married to a Maltese lady, his cousin has just over-wintered a classic motor yacht there, and, most importantly, his father, Lt. Cmdr. Michael Wallrock R.N.R. served on the Malta Convoys during the Second World War. So it was interesting to see the Grand Harbour, full of massive but restored battlements, houses, modern yachts and enormous cruise liners today, and trying to imagine it as it was during his months there.
Wick Antiques was established by Charles Wallrock in the early 1980s. Having grown up in the Antiques world Charles developed an extensive wealth of knowledge.
