St Keverne Local History Society is grateful to Mrs Collen Rogers for permission to reproduce these recordings

The Mohegan tapes contains the audio recordings made in 1966 by Alan Smith under the direction of Bernard Rogers.
All of the people on the tapes have close family links with the events of that night, back in 1898, and they portray a night of heroism, confusion and death which must have affected the quiet parish of St Keverne for many years.
