The arrival in Malta of this small body of men eluding the Ottomen fleet patrolling the channel between Malta and Sicily, and the incredible story how it slipped through the enemy forces camped around the “Borgo-Isola” fortified enclave , is a veritable saga that speaks volumes about the intelligence network maintained by Grand Master de la Vallette even at the height of the conflict.
