Herbert's occupation photographer.
Unable to see him past 1901 when he is a photographer. Looking at it re his age he would have been close to 50 by the end of WW1 so unless he lied about his age he wouldn't be in the services.
How did he get to Malta - travel to and from Europe not really documented so he could have travelled to somewhere like Italy and got to Malta from there.
How sure are you that he was a pharmacist?
There were British navy, army and air force on Malta by 1939. If he did change his occupation to pharmacist there may be a possibility that he was a civilian attached to HM forces.
I would doubt he was in the forces due to his age - he was 31 still with his parents in 1901.
