    Further to the discussion on D. A. Stewart, the following may be of interest:

    "Before the end of the year (1940), 210 had suffered two further crew losses . On September 2nd F/L P.D. Parry-Jones and ten crew were lost in a newly arrived Sunderland, T9043, which failed to return from a convoy patrol. And on December 27th N9022* crashed in a night landing off Maiden Island, north of Oban Bay, when returning from a patrol. The aircraft alighted successfully but immediately hit an object in the water which ripped open the aircraft's hull and flipped it over on its back. F/L Ivor Meggitt (Australian), and nine of those aboard, including a naval officer, were presumed drowned. The sole survivor, though injured was F/O D.A. Stewart."

    There is more to the tale, maybe Ross could chase it up.
