Force Landed November 15, 1942
Attempts to salvage this bomber by raising the left wing and lower the landing gear failed. The propellers and cowlings were removed from he undamaged right wing, and other gear from the bomber. The rest was abandoned.
Richard Rudd adds:
Near Quintell Beach, he had a cottage/shack, made of bush materials, and on visiting there one time he showed me the big liquid compass that he had been given from the B-24 "The Condor" on the beach. He showed me the spot where there were some bits sticking out of the sand.
