    Found the attached in a newspaper search. It was in the Western Morning News for December 1944.

    I wonder if they are still buried locally or were 'concentrated' into the large German Cemetery at Cannock Chase?

    Little to add to what I told the Penwith Local History Group other than to explain the Bodmin Emergency Hospital was in the Kendall Building of St Lawrence's Hospital in Bodmin. It treated wounded personnel from all three services and also dealt with a number of the casualties from the bombing of Bodmin in August 1942.
    Somewhere I have some photos from Penzance Cemetery - will have to go ahunting!
