    Default Reports on aircraft crash sites at sea

    I was just reading some of the latest Time Team reports on the Wessex Archaeology website and noticed that they have several reports on aircraft crash sites at sea.

    They also have a report written for English Heritage

    mbriscoe, Hi,
    Many thanks for the 'heads up' on this document. Fascinating stuff!
    When I retired I went and did an archaeology degree at my local Uni. So I read that document wearing "two hats" as it were!
    I do not mean to imply any disparagement, but all this coastal stuff is - to an extent - only ditch crawling. Many of our (Met) WW2 aviation casualties were 500+ miles out in The Oggin. No chance of rescue unless they came down almost on top of a Convoy and/or its Escorts!! But I bleat!
    Forum members are asked to read the document. It will give you some considerable enlightenment, but also - and this is the important bit - our own Dearly Beloved Leader (Ross) comes in for some considerable praise!!

    There are also crashes (axis & allied ) on http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/catalogue/specColl/dob/
    where they are reasonably near the coast. Map search is the easiest. Pete
