Cornwall in the First World War

During last month, each weekday I posted a photograph showing Cornwall's First World War. People were kind enough to come forward with comments and information, so I'm going to continue posting during October. Many thanks for your support and interest.

This image shows the Young Men's Christian Association canteen at Pendennis Castle. Behind the counter, three ladies provide refreshments for the castle's garrison: hot meals, tobacco and tea. Two off-duty soldiers hold snooker cues, while their seated colleagues tuck into snacks.

 My book, 'Cornwall In The First World War', is published by Truran. With 112 pages and 100 images, you'll find it in bookshops across the Duchy. It's also available through Amazon:
