Ilkley moor Halifax DK185

A nice walk out on ilkley moor brings you to this memorial stone to Halifax DK185 which crashed near this stone on the 31/1/1944 with the loss of the 7 crew !.

This pit is some 100 yrds away !
best ref on peak wreck hunters site !.

This patch of bog is about 1/2 a mile away and is the given ref for the crash site of lysander T1689 which fell on the 14/1/1941 in very wintery conditions sadly with the loss of
P/O William Sinclair Tennant.
I found nothing on the surface but about 30 yrds away someone has been digging and given the fact its a bog and so near the ref for this plane i can only guess at magpies!
