During this month, each weekday I'm posting a different image showing aspects of Cornwall's First World War.
Here's a photo from November 1918, just before the war's end. Camouflaged American coaster Lake Harris has come to grief on the beach at Longrock, east of Penzance. Local people have turned out to view the vessel; a few days later Lake Harris was successfully refloated. The American flag flies from her stern, and on the poop is mounted a small defensive gun.
