Seeking ID of this crashed Wellington: Battle of the Heligoland Bight?

Hello,

I've been looking for photos of what might have been a second Wellington that crashed along the N. German Coast (or nearby island) during the Battle of the Heligoland Bight on 18 December 1940.

Is this perhaps that a/c? If not, what is the date of this incident, clearly photographed after a FL somewhere on a coastal area?

Looks like this a/c was heavily worked over by souvenir hunters.

Regards,

Larry Hickey

Another pic of this one coming from another seller who also believe it's in France :

click on View the complete description
"Annotation au dos: « Bristol-Blendheim » ->
c’est en fait un vickers Wellington crashé vraisemblablement sur une plage de la Manche ( au regard du contexte de l'album)..."
it's in fact a Vikers Wellington probably crashlanded on a Channel beach (given the context of the album)..."

Fabric possibly burned off.
