The undercarriage from this Anson, which crashed on the slopes of Drum in Snowdonia on 25th April 1944.
There is a burned scar on the marshy ground behind this, with an assortment of bits and formerly molten aluminium.
The bits reported to have been spread downhill were not visible to us. If the reports are true, these were probably washed down by the nearby stream, and are probably somewhere in its present or former bed, if they were not "recovered" by the usual suspects.
