    Assuming for a moment that any at all actual charges are placed against ex-forces members at this late date, then there damn well better be serious charges fully prosecuted against ex-PIRA members as well starting at the top with Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness.

    Gents,

    This is a subject going off the thread slightly which effects a lot of people.
    One that needs to be dealt with like a "hot potato" IMHO, as you will never please everybody in this political minefield.
    The NI Historical Enquiry Team have their mandate, one that may be coming to an end, once those in central Government see the error of their ways.

    Anyway, what happeend to the pilot of the crashed ME-109?

    Didn't find anymore info, but reminds me of a bloke I met at the War and Peace show few years back, think I've told the story a few times but he was in to Planes etc and part of a archaeologist team who go and find missing planes etc, (one thing about the W&P show, you will meet some very interesting folk who have an interest like us in all manor of military, aviation etc) this guy was a collector of a certain panel on a Heinkel (is it a crash panel or emergency panel ?) ....... he mentioned the area we were at and not so far away was a farm with a crashed plane and some of the crew, still there, the Women who owned the farm or land didn't anyone to touch it and wrote it in here will or something similar........ further in the conversation he talked of a plane that was found in Russiaicon, although the team was looking for something else they had found this up in the trees, obvious the trees had acted as jack over time, once they managed to get to the plane and remove the cockpit, the pilot was still there........

    This link is particularly interesting especially the search for a plane in Papua New Guinea and looking at the aircraft fairly in tact after a rough landing is amazing.
    As said before my Dad was part of an RAF team that did exactly that, search for downed aircraft in jungle areas of Borneo/Sarawak and Malaya. Although young at the time he was often gone for weeks at a time, but they always seemed to be successful in recovering remains.
    Unknowingly, probably where I get my interest in a similar sphere of graves I suppose!!

    There is, in a likeminded topic, lots of WW2 stuff in the deserts of Libya and Egypt especially Sherman tanks and LRDG vehicles.

    Not by much.



    I suppose I really should watch the news for something other than the weather report.

    Gil, apologies for the digression.

    I have the same interest Gil, probably linked with my interest in history.

    One final comment on "that man" Gil .... More's the pity Jim, unfortunately the producers and directors of that terrorist horror show (on both sides of the divide) will never pay for their crimes...
