    Default Fishingboat sailed airmen to England

    On 26/11-1943 the crew of Danish fishing vessel "Orion" was arrested by the Germans in Denmark after having returned to harbour. They were accused of having helped allied airmen who had ditched. The son of the owner of the vessel told me that the reason was that they had spent a long time on the sea and had very little fish onboard. Also he mentioned that 4 life wests was found. Which aircraft / crew ? I have no idea if the crew were Bomber Command or Coastal command. Can anybody help ?
