Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk.V BD230

Whitley: Muggington

Failing to find anything at the Canberra site near Monyash, we went for an easy win with this monument erected over the crater of the crash site (and grave for three of the crew) of a Whitley near Muggington(SK 29516 43973). More information about the crash is here.

Previous reports suggested that any scraps of wreckage ploughed up were laid on the foot of the monument. Any such scraps seem to have gone, and to have been replaced by accident or design with half a dead rabbit.

We'll get back to the Canberra under more favourable circumstances...
