An Oxford bomber belonging to Broomfield Aerodrome, Montrose, made a forced landing in Montrose Tidal Basin. The tide was going out, and none of the occupants of the plane was the worse of the landing.
Photo shows a squad of R.A.F. men making an effort to salvage the aircraft before the incoming tide.
