Some bits of aluminium skinning from the site of the 31 March 1943 crash of 22 year old Flying Officer Edward Alexander Perry's Bristol Blenheim.

We don't normally bother too much with the historical stuff on here, but there's really nothing on the web from other wreck hunters on this.

Though there were no identifying marks on any of these bits, we are calling this definitively Blenheim wreckage based on the proximity to the High Ground Wrecks coordinates. No-one is disagreeing with us so far.

Location: SH 60874 62112

This pile of wreckage was so far from the others with no scatter in between that I would find it hard to believe it wasn't from a different site?
The undercarriage was about midway between the 2 major sites probably meaning it has been removed from one of them.

It seems to be the consensus that there is no Beaufighter here but where is the Skua if we haven't yet found it?
