    Thank you for the article. I think that the Air Transport Auxiliary also lost some aircraft in the Wigtown area during ferry deliveries in WWII. A couple ended up lost off the coast but one or more went down on your hills, but I don't recall the details. The ATA Museum at Maidenhead may have information that could assist.

    Thank you Allan. I'll follow that up I'm trawling through old newspaper reports from the Second World War, and its amazing how many losses there were in the high ground. It would be great to have an accurate picture. All the best.

    thanks for sharing. Reminded me of when I met a chap from Dumfries when I had a military vehicle collection. He invited us for dinner and he had 4 brownings from a Tiffie which crashed up on the hills. He also brought out an MG-15 complete with twin magazine drums and spider web sight - which he had bought from an elderly gent who had "liberated" the weapon from the Me 110 flown by Rudolf Hess.
    Poor chap was jailed soon after for holding guns "Off ticket" as it were but I often wondered what happened to that lovely Machine Gun
