John Harker, C&I Officer

This photo was taken by myself at the beginning of September on Broomhead Moor in the Peak District National Park near Sheffield. It shows the wreckage from an RAF Wellington bomber which crash-landed in December 1942. Sheets of armour plating & melted aluminium are still visible. The good news is that all the crew survived. Local schoolboys visited the site the day after the crash. One sat in the rear gun turret and accidentally fired the guns, sending a stream of 0.303 bullets flying across the moor! No harm was done except for there being a few startled grouse & sheep!
