Naval Reunion, Fowey, Cornwall. October 1991

Naval veterans revisited Fowey for a reunion of their wartime colleagues and met with the mayor, Hilda Court. Men of the Royal Navy 551 Assault Flotilla Group were stationed in the port in 1945 and helped in the D-Day landings and liberation of the Channel Islands. During the war, the Group set up winter quarters in huts at the Windmill area of the town whilst the officers stayed in Fowey Hall. Three officers made the nostalgic trip: Lt Fred Grant; Lt Tony Drew and Lt Earnest Pallant. The group are pictured in Fowey Hall, now a hotel. Photographer: Jonathan Barker

Estuary entrance, Fowey, Cornwall. Around 1925

Photographed on Point Neptune. Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots, given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his ordinary camera are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect
