A German bomber dropped a single parachute mine which exploded, killing three young marines, Hugh Connolly, F J Brunt and R G H Wyles, and causing structural damage to properties in the area of West Street and the town square. Wyles was buried locally and his grave can be seen in Llanwnda cemetery.
