15 August 1940

Hi guys

An explosion took place at the patrol boat depot at Ostend on 15 August 1940. Three boats were seriously damaged and another slightly damaged.

Sabotage was suspected. Do we have further details? Were the perpetrators caught?

Stay safe
Brian

PS: Apparently Belgian Resistance Fighters.

Did Belgium have an effective Resistance organisation less than 2 months after the German victory?

I don't know if the cause was established but sabotage seems to have been the standard German assumption whenever something went wrong.
