The pcitures below show
1. There is still wreckage just below Braydon Crags. It is hidden amongst the deep peat hags but is well worth looking for. Quite a surprise when you find it. Just bits n pieces left now but when you talk to people who lived in the valley they usually have memories of much larger parts discovered and treasured years ago.

2. The memorial at Cuddystone.

3. The memorial also lists the crashes and approximate locations.

4. Remembrances from Dutch visitors.
