Allt fawr Hurricane P3385

This is looking down from the summit of Allt Fawr around the grid ref given for the crash site of Hurricane P3385 which hit the summit on the 9.8.42 with the loss of pilot officer Robert Mcintyre!
I found nothing on this trip but a nice walk and the hawks from valley were out in force so not a total miss also in the picture at the top right blenheim aa154 forced landed after a engine fire on the 15.2.42 the 3 crew survived!

The photo is not of Allt Fawr, but of Foel Ddu. Allt Fawr is other side of lake, behind the camera.
