The photo of the very young man (with pipe in his mouth) to the far left of the memorial window is Kenneth Christopher Holland Ripley killed in the Battle of Britain. See St Materiana - Tintagel and Somerset memorials threads.

This is a great little museum, certainly a labour of love by its founders.

Yes I agree. A superb memorial in an excellent museum. Your photo is the window in the little chapel space within the museum. A great area for some quiet reflection on the sacrifices made by so many whose stories are told in the displays and artefacts in the museum. It also has a large collection of model aeroplanes that chart the development of aviation throughout the RAF's history. I particularly like the model of a part of St Eval. Well worth a visit if you are in Cornwall, especially as this museum is free - donations appreciated. It is next door to the Cornwall at War Museum which is also worth visiting and paying the entrance fee for.
