Cornwall in the First World War

During this month, each weekday I'm posting a different image showing aspects of Cornwall's First World War.

Here's a photo from November 1918, just before the war's end. Camouflaged American coaster Lake Harris has come to grief on the beach at Longrock, east of Penzance. Local people have turned out to view the vessel; a few days later Lake Harris was successfully refloated. The American flag flies from her stern, and on the poop is mounted a small defensive gun.

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: http://amzn.to/19JbtZm
