The DAVIDSTOW AIRFIELD & CORNWALL AT WAR MUSEUM has a wide remit, dedicated primarily to RAF
Davidstow moor from its opening on 1st October 1942 until its closure at
the end of 1945.
It also covers all the other airfields along the North Cornwall coast, the Royal Navy in and around
the county, the Army civilian services, home front etc. The area is still a military training area so that gives us scope to bring in the
post-war period. In 1982 vehicles and equipment etc, were airlifted from a warship off the coast in a training exercise prior to the
re-taking of the Falkland Islands. We also have displays depicting the Royal Observer Corps (WWII and Cold War) and
my old regiment The Light Infantry, from the amalgamation of the county regiments from 1968 up to 2007 when the expanded Light
Infantry became The Rifles. When Phase Two is complete we shall be able to commit much more space to each of these subjects
which will have a broader appeal.
Steve & Sheila Perry operate the museum on a non profit, privately funded basis,
and are seeking artefacts, photos, paper-work etc on all the subjects being covered and most of all details
regarding people who served or worked at RAF Davidstow Moor. This web site is supported by reciprocal links to other web sites.
