    CANADA
    THEOBALD, Donald James - Lac - 4644 - RCAF.
    Lethbridge (Mountain View)Cemetery, Alberta, Canada.
    Fell off the wing of an aircraft that had force landed and drowned.

    Aircraft crashed into the Fort Anne Basin (Nova Scotia). Theobald walked out on the wing and slipped on a patch of oil.

    The pilot, C766 F/Lt Brock Wylie of Estevan, Saskatchewan grabbed two lifejackets and jumped into the water. He reached Theobald who accepted the lifejacket but then lost it and owing to a strong current disappeared. He wasn't buried in Lethbridge, Alberta until 30 October following a long search.

    F/Lt Wylie, now a Squadron Leader was lost 3 June 1941 while on convoy patrol.

    Regards,

    Dave
