A sad reminder; there is also a smaller plaque in the ground on the slopes approaching Carn Meini, for a similar plane crash in September 1944. This time 5 British men killed, though there are about another 4 noted as injured. Surprisingly there is still small parts of the plane there in the hollow. moss Posted by moss

Yes, there are some here too, in the cairn itself. There are a number of crash sites in the Brecon Beacons, including one at Waun Rydd which is the site of an annual remembrance walk/service.
