Do you have any locations? I have a preliminary one for the Westland wallace. I may add Its personal ineterest, I'm not looking for trophy's. I think its important that the crash sites are not lost keeping the memory alive of airman that have lost there lives.

Mav, As you quite rightly state in your email the Bailies want to leave all aircraft remains that are now on the hill intact.
I will send you an email to you personally with some details. Jackie

I’m a Canadian researcher(Winnipeg, Manitoba) and have been researching the Cummings story for several years. P/O Cummings was the first Canadian airman to die in WWII. He was from Ottawa, Canada.

I’ve been in touch with James MacKay regarding erecting a memorial to Cummings and his other crew member(Stewart).
I believe James has been sharing information with Jackie Cumberbirch.
You can contact me

Good Morning. My husband and I are traveling to the UK from Canada shortly and would love to know how to get to the crash site as we plan to make a short visit to Ellard Cummings gravesite and the Bennahie Hill area. Ellard Cummings would be my husbands Great- Uncle. Thank you in advance for any help you can give to us.
