I guess N°2 seems to be the steel wire skeleton of the parachute pack. Any casualty on that crashsite ?

Re: Identification some parts of a Halifax Mk V

This hypothesis is very interesting. I will search about parachutes in resistance mueseums for a comapraison...

7 death in this crash (5 britishs and 2 canadians) :
- F/O Gerald Dennis Carroll (Pilot) RAF 137405 - 21 years old
- Sgt Peter Theodore Thompson (Engineer) RAF 1638225 - 21 years old
