My other grandfer George Henwood from Padstow served there during WW2. Nick Bassett 13th October 2017 at 1:30 pm - ReplyFantastic pics of RAF St Eval airfield – some I’ve never seen before & lovely to see Royal Navy Sea Furies & Fireflies parked up on the airfield – I wonder why they were at St Eval when RNAS St Merryn was just a few miles away?Picture 14.105 – this is a Sea Fury FB11 (serail VW692), not a Seafire Picture 14.107 – this is a Firefly AS5 Picture 14.111 – are you certain this is RAF St Eval from the air? I just can’t get certain things to align with the map & my own knowledge of St Eval – also the large semi-circular bulding doesn’t appear on the map.Are there any more you could post up please? Thanks! Peter Cottle 5th September 2018 at 6:43 pm - ReplyThank you for all of this information and your continuing commitment to the memory of those who served in the RAF.

I have some of them as some where published in a book. I also have some interesting annecdotes adn tales from some airmen who served there. I would imagine most of the guys who wrote to me are dead now but if there is interest I will dig them out and forward to the site.One of the stories tells about how a young Pilot Officer A C Clarke (yep[ Artjur C Clarke) was trialing out a new navigation system.Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
