Meet Joe Borda, that's him on the left. Doesn't he look like a detective who could have been in the original "Maltese Falcon"? The rake of the Panama hat and the almost casual, yet piercing look. Joe, if ever they make that movie again, you've got my vote for the lead.
Joe is a good friend and one of the most avid collectors of Police items I know. I am sure there are other people with large collections of badges and uniforms, but Joe has almost taken over the house from top to bottom with his collection. The items range from complete uniforms to badges/patches etc etc. If you are a police collector, and looking to trade, please contact Joe direct on his webpage at http://www.joe-borda.de.vu/
With a career spanning 32 years in the Maltese Police Force, ranging from "Beat" patrol through to the elite S.A.G team, ex-Sgt Joe now lives quietly in the village of Birkirkara Malta, relaxing with his lovely wife Lillian, and enjoying the odd cheesecake (pastizzi) washed down with either a "Kinnie" or Cisk beer. We spent some time with Joe and Lillian in November of 2006 and want to thank them for their hospitality. For those of you who haven't been to Malta, I urge you to go visit. The people are like the weather, warm and friendly and the food is delicious, so what more are you waiting for?.
Joe is also "Sheba Imports" exclusive agent for the Maltese Police ring © and other items, so if you are looking for something unique, contact Joe for prices.
