Why service personnel are recovering a WWII Spitfire

A team of servicemen and women who have been injured in recent conflicts has been digging up the remains of a Spitfire shot down over Wiltshire during World War II.

Operation Nightingale is a project that uses archaeology to help with the rehabilitation of injured service personnel.
