    Hi David
    I'm not sure if you are the same person who was looking for more information on my Grandfather Arthur Basil Watkinson , Spitfire pilot with the RAF 66 Squadron / 42921 .

    Regards Marshall

  4. Geology is a significant aspect of what you are describing. On the chalk of course there's little chance of the engines for instance going down to any appreciable depth. Its still possible to find intact bits and pieces however, especially if they flew off. But my task at the moment Pete is to get a broader view using research of the events surrounding the several dozen losses, in the few parishes adjoining the one where I live. I've come up against a bit of a barrier, now that I want more detailed information. Thanks for the Oad street details, I wonder if its detailed in the 'Then & Now series' I'm sure you're familiar with.

    Dave, re your posting, for Kent Sources- try posting in the Aviation section on Kent History Forum. http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/, Don't think you'll find any County wide experts but there are lots of individuals with localised knowledge. One I can write off for you is a PR Me 110 crashed south of Oad St. Thereare photos of the recovery during the war in the pub there, but they only got the wings as she had gone in deep. In my TA days we took an old boy who had helped out to try and find the fuselage. We searched a MASSIVE area with Forsters and got nothing except a few .5 US rounds (there are quite a few B 17s along the ridge. General feeling was that it was lost when the M2 went through and the area was extensivley landscaped so could be a lot deeper than originally. Pete
