Cornwall in the First World War

During this month, each weekday I'm posting a photograph showing Cornwall's First World War.

Here's a close-up of Coastal Class airship C.2, which flew from Royal Naval Air Station Mullion. She's being walked across the flying field by her ground-crew, using trailing-ropes to manoeuvre her; her engines are stopped so perhaps she's just arrived home at the end of a patrol. Beneath her gondola we can make out bombs, used to attack German submarines on the rare occasions they were spotted.

 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:
