Halifax G-AHZN (ex-RAF PP244)- ditched 26 Sep 1946

On 26 Sep 1946 Halifax G-AHZN of London Aero Motor Services (LAMS) ditched just off the beach at Knokke, Belgium.
It was carrying grapes from Italy to England, but ran into navigational problems and fuel shortage. One passenger from Norway was killed, crew was safe.

My two questions:

Halifax was ex-RAF PP244 and had served in RAF Transport Command.
Was the a/c an original transport or did it also fly in Bomber Command as bomber before being changed into a freight plane?

Pilot was Squadron Leader G(eorge?) Coleman in the 1946 accident.
Is he the same Coleman who disappeared in Proctor G-AHWP off Margate on 6 Jan 1948?

Thanks for info.

Regards,

Leendert
