St Eval Aerodrome

Vertical aerial view of RAF St Eval, Cornwall. Two badly-damaged hangars and numerous bomb craters around the technical site and adjoining fields attest to the many serious raids mounted by the Luftwaffe on this important Coastal Command airfield in 1941. Note the attempt to camouflage the airfield and runways as hedge and field patterns.
