Avro Anson Mk.I LT184 or Avro Anson Mk.I LT116?

This is a shock absorber(known as an oleo strut or just an oleo to enthusiasts)from the undercarriage of one of what may be two Ansons wrecked on Mynydd Perfedd in Snowdonia, over a wreckage field measured by us as 0.4 miles across.
It is claimed that there are three sets of undercarriage mounting brackets at the site. One Anson contained only two such brackets, so it would prove that there are two Ansons in the wreckage spread over the hillside if three such brackets were found.
The condition of what we saw on the day however makes this far from clear. Less convincing yet are the arguments concerning which wreck site is which.More info
