There is a wonderful story about the Royal Dart Hotel  in KIngswear. During the second world war, it was used by the British Navy as offices and was code-named HMS Cicala. Imagine the surprise of the workers one morning when they awoke to reports on German radio that HMS Cicala had been sunk during the night!
