Caption Reads: "Crash landing of B-24J near Metfield, Norfolk, England on November 3, 1944."

Info Contributor - Tom Brittan
Crashed in a field at Fressingfield, adjoining Metfield, Suffolk (not Norfolk) on 8 Mar 44 and was salvaged on 10 & 11 Mar 44.
The date November 3, 1944 (11/3/1944) is most likely a misinterpretation of the British day/month/year date 11 March, 1944, when salvage operations were completed. If the photo was taken in November, the tail would have high visibility Group identification markings. Furthermore, the absence of the squadron code RN on the fuselage points to an early March photo at the latest.
