War

The photograph of Percy Chirgwin who was in the Royal Flying Corps in WW1 comes from the Cecil Jenkin Collection (archive reference 657).

Information about WW2 is reproduced in the archive book Newlyn at War but the book does not contain any of the information held about WW1.

The section in the catalogue about War contains entries about the two world wars including information on bombing, evacuees, the homeguard, refugees,  war heroes, war graves, war memorials, war rations, war ships, and WW1 women drivers.
