      I see the Lariggan rocks are well defined at one time they were visible at high tide that is until jerry unloaded a stick of bombs on them
      which I believe was our first bombing of WW2

      I see the darling little footbridge is marked, across the Lariggan river. Is there a non-copyright pic of this anywhere, that some kind soul could upload?

      Seriously?! The Germans bombed the Lariggan rocks? duh Thanks for that information welb! ::6:

      I dont think the rocks were the intended target !!!

      @Penzancemaid - I have a few, but I am checking in the copyright situation first.
      @denanmor - they were after you, but had set the clocks too early .... ::15:

      I have received a comprehensive reply concerning copyright issues surrounding the use of certain images.
      I will be making an announcement with regards to that shortly. The criteria surrounding that possibility are specific and must be met.

      Sounds ominous.
    • treeve
      Not at all ominous, the site will be the better for it, ::6:
      but the gates must not be opened yet, until I have passed on the criteria. Just putting it all together for everyone.
