    Seventy years ago this week, on 19 August 1940, three German Junkers bombers, escorted by two ME109 fighters, flew in over the Pembrokeshire coast and dropped their bombs onto the oil tanks high above the west Wales town of Pembroke Dock.

    The tanks contained thousands of gallons of vitally important...

    The height of summer is an excellent time of year for spotting dragonflies and damselflies.
