2012 sees the 70th anniversary of the day World War Two came to Bodmin. This video book tells the story of a tip and run raid by two German fighter-bombers which brought death and destruction to the county town of Cornwall, UK. Using eyewitness testimony, wartime photographs, read, see and hear the incredible stories of life and death from that fateful Friday. Nine were killed, 18 injured and 400 made homeless, but it could have been so much worse...

If you can add any detail to the story of that day with a family story, old photograph or historical research please add a comment.

This video has been made to honour the memory of James Edgar Tippett and the 8 members of the Sargent family who died that day. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
