Cave Penney Cross on Corndon Tor, Dartmoor
Cave Penney Cross on Corndon Tor, Dartmoor. This memorial is to Evelyn Anthony Cave Penney, who was shot dead by an enemy sniper whilst leading his troops in Palestine on June 8th 1918. He was 19 years of age.

The inscription ends, "Look up and lift up your heads". With a view towards Sharp Tor and the mist swirling up from the River Dart in the valley below, this seemed particularly good advice on this morning in early summer.
