Out by sea .....

a couple of months late - but here is the next installment :)

---oXo---

continued from the previous post ....

The german shore party after getting safely to their inflatables with the airmen - set off down the river ....
After about 10minutes they heard a distant chugging sound, hurriedly they pull up on the river bank and lay low, just in time too avoid river patrol boat on its way upstream ....
After another 15minutes or so paddling downstream, keeping close to the banks, they rounded a bend in the river and rendez-vous'd with their ride home, an E-Boat (a captured british MTB) moored in slight inlet.
The men scrambled on board as fast as they could as the E-Boat engines revved up .....
With all on board and below decks the E-Boat headed out down the estuary and into the open sea. However a shore battery had spotted them and started firing ....
The E-Boat made full speed and zig-zagged,  a shot fell just short of them .....
They soon out-distanced the fire from the shore battery and made way to cross the channel ....
