    Default came across this today, diferent times but same happenings

    Hello,

    16/5/1940
    A Coastal Command Anson/500 Sqn observed 7 men and women in a lifeboat rowing towards
    England in a position 016 Maaslight 45 miles.


    These days Refugees ( illegal immigrants ? ) at least do not have to row across,:)
    OR were they survivors from a sunken ship ??

    But to be serious.
    Is anything known of their fate, did they reach England and if so who were they and what became of them ?

    Thanks
    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    a lifeboat towing towards England in a position 016 Maas Light Wessel 45 miles.

    There are a lot of typing errors:

    The lifeboat could be Zeemanshoop.

    Thanks for the links and details.
    Thought it to be almost impossible to have rowed across. But one man did swim across at some time in WW2.
