    Salvaged WWII bomber parts

    These are parts of (an) aircraft that was were salvaged of the coast of Ameland and Rotummerplaat, two Dutch islands in the Wadden sea. They are displayed in the open air near the Hotel Bernstorff on Schiermonnikoog. There are questions about the provenance of the propeller. Does anyone have a clue? The plaque on the tailplane reads: "On November the 8th 1942 a four-engined bomber crashed on the Rottumerplaat. This aircraft, a Handley Page Halifax was part of "Operation Gardening". The object was to lay minefields North of the Wadden Isles to hinder German shipping. All the crewmembers were killed in the crash.” The plaque on the propeller reads: “This propeller of an allied bomber was dredged up by a Zoutkamper fisherman above Ameland. Unfortunately it is unknown of what aircraft is, be we hope to be able to retrieve its provenance”
