British landing craft, Falmouth docks, Cornwall. 1943

Twenty five Royal Naval ratings and Royal Marines on an unidentified landing craft. The photograph is taken from the jetty looking down. At the front of the group, wearing a cap, is a Petty Officer of the medical branch. He also displays a combined operations badge on the right cuff of his jacket. A Marine corporal is sitting at the back of the group. A large bunch of bananas is being held up by members of the group. Bananas would have been a very rare luxury during the Second World War.

The 'Obby 'Oss, South Quay, Padstow, Cornwall. 1966

The May Day 'Obby 'Oss festival with the parade moving through the town. The 'Obby 'Oss is an integral part of the May Day celebrations in Padstow. Each year, on the 1st May, the town is decorated in greenery and the 'Oss (horse) parades the streets, followed by a 'teaser' who holds a padded bat. The procession is accompanied by accordions, drums and singing. The fearsome 'Oss wears a large mask and swirling skirts under which he tries to catch young maids. Photographer: Charles Woolf .

Dolly Pentreath's memorial, St Pol de Leon churchyard, Paul, Cornwall. Late 1800s or early 1900s

A view of Dolly Pentreath's memorial set in the wall of Paul churchyard with an elderly bearded gentleman standing by the side. Dolly Pentreath's main language was Cornish and she only learned a little English as an adult. She is considered by many people to be the last person to speak Cornish fluently as a first language, although this is contested by some. She died in 1777 and was buried at Paul where, in June 1860, a monument in her honour was set into the churchyard wall by Prince Louis Lucien Bonaparte, a nephew of Napoleon, and by Reverend John Carbett, the Vicar of Paul of the time. Part of the A.K. Hamilton Jenkin collection. Photographer: Unknown.
