Bristol Blenheim IV , L4835 Clee hill Ludlow 14th of December ,1940

 A bit of a gamble but it worked , this small piece on the slopes of Clee Hill , near Ludlow confirms I am at the site of the loss of Bristol Blenheim IV , L4835 the plane flying from R,A,F, Upwood on the 14th of December ,1940 encountered bad weather trying to stay in contact with the ground sadly at 1.200ft the plane struck a telegraph pole and impacted the rising slope killing the 3 crew .
After a short visual search i was surprised to find this piece still on the surface as access would not have been a problem for recovery .
Crew =
Sgt I.M.Curror [Pilot]
Sgt A.J.V.Secker
Sgt J.Pinchard
