Hi I'm the niece of sgt pilot Gordon s. parry who died on 28/07/41. I visited the site a few years ago but could find nothing. I talked to a local who was a boy at the time and the plane hit the smaller of the 2 peaks and I found wreckage jammed under a big rock outcrop at the top of the mountain. I found a zip pull and aluminium pipes and rivetted metal so am sure this is the remains of their aircraft.The mountain I think is carn fad rum apparently the whole area was cordoned off by military after the crash.
My mother is still alive and always wondered the location.
Thanks Denise Taylor

Hi, not sure if you ever did return to the area but I live just below Garn bach, the hill which the plane crashed. As a child I used to play around the crash site with my brother and friends. We found lots of bullet casings etc. I went up last year but there is not much to see any more. I think the site has been cleared by souvenier hunters over the years but I am happy to take you to the site if you wish. Get in touch.
