OCT 15 1944 Holland: Death in a minefield on the front line - See more at: http://ww2today.com/ The flak ship Vp1605 MOSEL, escorting the Norwegian freighter INGER JOHANNE off Lillesand, engulfed in a torrent of fire from Beaufighters of No 404 Squadron, one of which can be seen passing overhead at mast height, 15 October 1944. The ships were attacked by 21 Beaufighters and 17 Mosquitos of the Banff and Dallachy Wings. The MOSEL eventually blew up and sank.
The explosion of a German ship, the British attacked the stormtroopers 'Bofayter' (Bristol Beaufighter). Presumably, the attack of the German convoy, part of which is embodied in the picture, occurred off the southern coast of Norway and the North Sea.
