German parachute mine crater and bomb fragments
Howden Moors, Peak District
Previously believed to be crater of a V1 Flying Bomb now understood to have been made by a German parachute mine.
These grey fragments are from the bomb’s fins.
See this thread on Peak Wreck Hunters for more on how people can tell one rusting scrap of metal from another after 65 years.
Wow – I’m learning so much history here!
