St Eval Church really is a fantastic memorial in itself really, aside from the lovely stained glass memorial window, there is a whole assortment of plaques and other memorials inside. The chuch is on the RAF St Eval Station Badge.

I have a few photos I took when I was there a couple weeks back, they are here; http://www.airfields.fotopic.net/steval

This is part of the interior. It really is a shrine to Coastal Command and the men that served in, and were lost. That memorial really should be the basis for all airfield memorials.

Amazing to think that the RAF wanted to demolish the church during RAF St Evals' construction, stiff local opposition prevented this, much to the RAFs and locals benefit. It sits very high on the landscape and can be seen from many parts in Cornwall from a suprisingly long distance, it even served as a day mark for mariners, having its top painted white.
