Gear box crunching

All speeds goes into gear smoothly but when reducing third to second and second to first theres a crunching sound. Is it the gear box going down?

Its much more common to gat the synchromesh breaking down on changes down the box rather than going up, so yes, I'd think it likely that the gearbox is slightly worn. It may be that taking a little longer on the down-change will help, or use the double-declutching technique that used to be necessary before gearboxes gained synchromesh.....
