The Gibraltar Heritage Journal

Richard Garcia, Tito Benady

The Gibraltar Garrison Library (Festival HQ)

This year the 25th number of The Gibraltar Heritage Journal is published. It was founded by the Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society as a means of fund-raising for the benefit of the Gibraltar Heritage Trust and soon developed into a history journal under its first editor, Tito Benady. Over the years, it has provided a vehicle for a great deal of excellent research by a considerable number of local historians. The first editor realised in 2003 that if the journal was to last a successor to his work in a garret in Grendon was needed, and he approached some of his more articulate friends. Eventually Jennifer Ballantine Perera took the position in 2008, by which time Tito Benady was in his late 70s. Jennifer was very successful including a best-selling edition on the Unions. Unfortunately her work as director of the Garrison Library increased and she was unable to find time for editing the Journal and Tito Benady had to take over again. He has now handed over to Richard Garcia who is a historian as well as an accomplished writer and editor.

Tito Benady and Richard Garcia will together present the story of the Journal and will consider some of the highlights of earlier editions.

Over the years, the Journal has become an invaluable record of Gibraltar’s history, including our relatively recent history, through the publication of personal reminiscences and family histories, in addition to more traditional articles on military history, social history, language in Gibraltar, and much else. This event will therefore be a celebration of Gibraltar’s past, its people and its culture.
