Sand portraits honour First World War dead in Cornwall


Volunteers have created a portrait in sand at Porthcurno beach in Cornwall, southwest England, for the centenary of Armistice Day.

The beach drawing was of Cornish man Richard Charles Graves-Sawle, who fought with the Coldstream Guards in France, until his death on November 2, 1914.

A total of 32 beaches across the UK featured the sand portraits.
