War Grave, Avro Anson N9857, Crashed 13/04/1941
Memorial planned for remote war grave on Ben More
Efforts are being made to contact the families of six airmen buried at one of the most remote war graves in the UK.
The crew from Scotland, England and South Africa died when their Avro Anson crashed on Ben More, a mountain in the north west Highlands, in April 1941.
It was almost a month before their bodies were found.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission wants to let their families know that a memorial is to be placed where the men were buried close to the crash site.
The crew were flying their twin-engined aircraft on a night-time cross country navigation exercise out of RAF Kinloss in Moray on 13 April.
They crashed at 701m (2,300ft) on Ben More, a Munro near Inchnadamph, in Sutherland.
Those who died were: Pilot Officer William Drew, from Barrow in Furness in Cumbria; Sgt Jack Emery, of Trowbridge in Wiltshire; Flt Sgt Thomas Kenny, from Barnsley in Yorkshire; Sgt Charles Mitchell, of Aberdeen; Flying Officer James Steyn, from Johannesburg; and Sgt Harold Tompsett, of Croydon in Surrey.
Because of bad weather and the remoteness of the area, their bodies were not discovered until 25 May.
