Squadron Leader Coleman ditched just off the seafront at Knokke - Het Zoute following fuel shortage due to faulty navigation. Formerly PP244 and supposedly named Port of London, the aircraft was carrying grapes from Bergamo to London. A Norwegian passenger lost his life. LAMS had six Halifax C.8s which were painted blue.
