Camborne Youth Band pays tribute to fallen Newquay policeman in WW1

A very moving tribute at Sailly-sur-la-Lys graveyard today as Camborne Youth Band honoured the grave of Thomas Penhorwood, a policeman from Newquay who was killed in in 1915, collecting wounded after the Battle of Aubers Ridge.
A 100-year-old bugle was played by his grave and PC Dave Wilton of Camborne laid a wreath.
It was an emotional tribute to a brave Cornishman lying a long way from home.
