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.

In 1914 these men were mobilised to Falmouth.  They're gunners from the Royal Artillery, posing proudly on Pendennis Head with their 6 inch field gun. Many gunners trained there in the use of such weapons, before being sent to the Western Front.

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:
