Formation p-47s 42-7872 and 42-7898

This pair of P-47 fighters 42-7872 and 42-7898 were flying from Atcham in Shropshire on the 30/09/43 ,when due to weather they both struck Cats Tor with the loss of CPT M.L.Stepp Jr and Staff SGT L.R.Morrison .
Some of the remains still on site and in the wall of one of the scars i found this .50 bullet still with red paint on the head, lucky as i don't use a metal detector !
ref SJ 99502 75410
