Boston of No. 107 squadron?

for our new upcoming 'de luchtoorlog boven Zeeuws-Vlaanderen' (to be published 15 April 2020 see www.ww2research.nl ) we are looking for confirmation weather this picture is the Boston from No. 107 squadron which was downed by AA on 1 August 1942 near the village of Breskens (Zeeland).
thanks in advance
Wim

That photo is pretty small. Is there something in that wreckage that looks like a Boston to you?

Sorry, but I'm still not seeing it.

What supporting information do you have that this is AL725?
Did the photograph come from a resident in Breskens?

You must have a reason for stating that a crashed aircraft photograph might be a Boston III, crewed by Pilot Officers Corah, Allen and Lindley who were all killed.
