    AUS408161 Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr) Donald William BEATTIE RAAF, was severely wounded in the head whilst on operations to Mainz, on 11/12-8-1942. His No.150 Squadron Wellington III X3744*, had been hit by flak and later was attacked by a nightfighter, killing the rear gunner (AUS406589 F/Sgt Paton BELL RAAF), and wounding Beattie, The Wellington made it back to Coltishall, where it crash-landed.

He was discharged from the RAAF on 25 December, 1944, and died in Melbourne on 16 March, 1946, he was buried in his home-state (Tasmania). His death was deemed attributable to war service.
