Have you checked the GPS reading with a few/many other GPS units? Could be a bit of a gamble if relying on only 1.

Davidgamble - There are in excess of 2000 WW2 RAAF crash sites, just in Australia.
Perhaps it would assist everyone, if you put up the details of just exactly which WW2 RAAF crash site you're talking about?

Ron, if you click on the 'WW2 RAAF Crash Site' in the 'Related Pages' box below the thread it will take you to the page for the Mt Torbreck crash site. It is the crash site described in your link, which unfortunately does not include the co-ordinates of the site.

The following 4WD Action thread includes the co-ordinates of the track start and memorial site WW2 RAAF Anson Crash Site

They are, as copied from the thread, "GPS coords as requested.
Start of the access track is at the junction of Barnewall Plains Rd & Torbreck Rd - Lat -37.3441 Long 145.9314
Memorial acknowledging the 4 lives lost from RAAF 14 Squadron Avro Anson A4-4 - Lat -37.3524 Long 145.9409

Those coords are from pins that I dropped via Mud Maps when I was standing next to them. It has to be said that anyone who wants to head up there, make sure you are prepared and be very careful...."

The co-ords coincide with the 'Avro Anson Memorial Track' shown on the map and shown in Places here Avro Anson Track

Google is a very good tool.

What you are seeing is a comment that was made on a Places page and is automatically shown in the forum to allow users of the places pages know that a comment has been added.

The place title (in the Places pages) is written exactly as it appears above.

Other examples of this are currently on the front forum page.

Thanks for the link Ron to verify the position coordinates for the crash site. They were almost identical to what we had in the system for this place but I have adjusted the coordinates to be exactly as per that report. This change is live.

(PS: I'm just back from 15 days trip away so catching up)
