A Resting Place in Assynt

In a violent snowstorm in March 1941 the crash of a WWII Anson on Ben More Assynt brought a training flight to a tragic end.

The crash-site also became a burial-site; the remoteness of the area forced local people to make this one of only two sites in Scotland where the crew were buried beside their craft.

Mark Stephen visits what became known as 'Aeroplane Flats' in the company of relatives of the Anson crew, and speaks to the people who have cherished their memory.
