Aran Fawddwy

On this visit to aran fawddwy with sean and mick we got to find remains of p-4741-6246 and beaufighter rd210 the pictures abve are some of the very sparse relics of the p47 including the brake unit above, the fact that this has survived at the site is a miracle [bloody magpies] it was returned to it's hiding place !

These pics are of the beaufighters remains which are spread all though the scree from the impact point [above] hight in the gully down to the lake .

thanks to sean and mick !
