Wellington BJ621, Eudon Mill Bridgenorth ,Shropshire

Ok no remains were looked for but a site visit to the field at Eudon Mill Bridgenorth ,Shropshire where on the 9th September, 1943 at 00.29 hours Vickers Wellington BJ621 crashed during a cross country bombing exercise the accident was put down to poor weather and crew fatigue given the crews heavy training schedule all 5 crew were lost in the crash and due to the force of the crash only 3 of the crews remains were recovered .
After following the foot path to the given ref the quiet field looks undisturbed by the event but looking harder there is a variation in the growth ? but as the field is water logged and a war grave it is not a place i would go digging around myself
crew = found and buried at Chester
Sgt G.D.Morrow
Sgt W.H.Lawrence
Sgt N.L.Wachter
Not found =
Sgt W.Shepherd
Sgt F.G.Wells
