Mustang AP171 ,June 11, 1943 Canadian Flying Officer S.P.R. Brouillette ,

 From Todays trip out with Ade Wilkes to the Brown Clee Hill, Shropshire and the site of Mustang AP171 which crashed on the southern side of the hill on June 11, 1943 with the loss of Canadian Flying Officer S.P.R. Brouillette .
The plane was flying in poor weather on a training flight over the Shropshire borders when it hit the lower slopes of the Brown clee hill breaking up over the steep slope
After a zigzag on the slope and checking Rabbit holes 1 .50 Bullet was located then near the fence a piece of coolant tube was found by 2 posts showing signs of impact damage then further up the slope a second nearly complete .50 round was found confirming the site
