The King of Lampedusa-Mediterranian island surrenders to Stringbag crew" Can anybody help with images?

Recommended Posts

A fantastic story about a Swordfish crew that starts 1943 from Malta for a rescue mission,looses orientation and is forced to land with the last drop op fuel on the italian island of Lampedusa.But instead of beeing arrested,the island commander askes the british airmen to accept the surrender of the badly bombed island and transmit it to the allies.

I found some articles (a detailed one is here)about that nice and unbloody ww2 aviation story and learned there is even a Musical (!) about that,but I could not find a image of Cohens Swordfish.

Can anybody help with images of Cohens plane or other Swordfishs from Malta from the period mid 1943?
