Harry Dale

Child evacuee killed by an unmarked mine

23rd July 1944
Buried at:  

Harry and his friend Ronald Munting seem to have been evacuated together to Cornwall from Hornsey Rise, and must have been housed with a family fairly close to Gunwalloe Cove.

The boys were killed when they wandered on the beach and accidentally triggered an explosion from an unmarked mine which killed them both. Harry's parents evidently survived the Blitz, and were buried here alongside their son in 1971 and 1973.
