While battling against the wind, and trying not to sink into the peat bog on Holme Moss recently, we stumbled across the site of a fatal air crash from the second world war.
According to this website the wreckage is of a Fairey Swordfish P4223. Further web searching revealed that the pilot was Sub Lt. Gerald Williamson of the Naval Air Branch (hence the White Ensign) who was killed when his aircraft crashed on 25th January 1940.
