Hayle came together this morning to remember the centenary of the start of the Somme conflict.

Hayle Royal British Legion members, Hayle mayor Nick Farrar, deputy mayor Clive Polkinghorne and a group of around 25 residents met at the Hayle War Memorial to observe the occasion.

The service was especially important as on this day 100 years ago a Hayle resident, Samuel James Bailey, 29 years old of Mount Pleasant lost his life fighting with The Devonshire Regiment 2nd battalion on the Somme.
