New Zealand Broadcasting Unit commentator Doug Laurenson [Military Service no. 34957] recounts the experiences of an RAF bomber crew who were hit by anti-aircraft shells over an Albanian port but managed to belly-land on a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. Laurenson quotes from the Squadron Leader's description of their experience.
