Avro Anson LT184 , Mynydd Perfedd
On the rocky slopes of Mynydd Perfedd the scattered remain of 2 Anson's exist and doubt has existed to which site is which well last Friday I climbed up the trail of wreckage, the first piece of which I found in the stream bed about 200 ft above Maes-Caradoc farm and followed the wreckage spread up one of the streams right up to the cliff face where these bits were the highest I found right next to a area of burnt battery, instrument ,electrics remains in the scree amongst which I found this Irish coin dated 1942!
LT184 was on a flight from Bishops Court, Northern Ireland and should confirm this site to be LT184 as the other Anson was LT116 on a local out of Llandwrog
LT184 crashed on the 5th, October , 1943
