In February 1942 or 1943 I was one of the early arrivals at the crash site of a what I recall was a Halifax 2 (could be wrong but I think it was Merlin-powered) at Bwlchyffridd, Montgomeryshire. It was near my home and I still recall the circumstances quite clearly. It was a Sunday afternoon at ariound 2.15 p.m. and the weather was thundery with a very low cloudbase. I seem to recall subsequently reading somewhere that the aircraft was from an OTU in Rutland.

Can anyone enlighten me on the details of this tragic event?
