The above aircraft came down in August 1944 near Kingussie, Highland with the loss of all on board.

The site is remote. I discovered the soles of 3 airman’s boots, photographed and left in situ.

Also, I discovered a lump hammer with wooden shaft fully intact but with no markings, several .303 rounds and a brass clip with web strap attached.

Are you able to identify the brass clip as it has a unique shape?
