Additional Information:

From http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-10672567

A memorial service for 22 military personnel who died when Cornwall was bombed in World War II has been held.
The service marked the 70th anniversary of the Penhale bombing in which the first military personnel were killed in Cornwall.
Four bombs were dropped in 1940 onto the rest and recuperation centre for soldiers who had survived Dunkirk.
Relatives of those affected attended the memorial, which is the final service to be held for the incident.
Commander Ian Hiskip, from the Royal British Legion, said: "The 58th Light Anti Aircraft Regiment had been accommodated in Penhale having suffered some fairly horrific experiences at Dunkirk.
William Moffatt survived the bombings of Penhale Camp in which 22 men were killed "A lone German bomber, who we believe was looking for RAF St Eval, stumbled across Penhale Camp and dropped its four bombs."

Most of the 22 men who were killed in the incident were buried in Perranporth, but many of their families were unable to attend their funerals because they were based in Scotland, Wales and the north of England.
