Good morning, Can anyone out there tell me what year the remains of the Ju 88, which crashed at Redwood Farm, Burnham-on- Crouch on the night of August 12/13 1942 were recovered? Also what was recovered from the dig? I believe the dig took place either late 1980s, or early 90s, but I may well be wrong. Any info greatly appreciated. Many thanks. Old Towzer.

The Blitz, Then and Now only states: "Site investigated by Robin Hill who discovered only small fragments."

Thanks for the info Aviart. Yes I have a copy of the Blitz Then & Now, but i'm almost certain that the site was the subject of a major recovery after the book was published. Yet i can't find any reference to it on Google, or anywhere else! I'm just curious to know what else was found, as I have the remains of the navigation maps, plus some other bits which are said to have come from this aircraft.
