Photographer's Remark

Aircraft of 218 Sqn was reportedly hit by German flak and landed on the beach at Vlissingen (Flushing). The crew is given as Captain J.F. Chisholm and Sergeant Williams. Numerous planes of the warring nations in Flanders ended up in Zeeland province and were interned, this DH.9 becoming DEH-446 in Dutch service. It was returned in 1920, minus the engine. The grand building is the Grand Hotel des Bains, destroyed during the liberation of Vlissingen in November 1944. Photo by: Charles Dert / Nederlands Instituut voor Militaire Historie
