Crashed 29 August 1941. Although reported missing, it was a month before the wreck was discovered. The tragedy was compounded by the fact that both airmen, Pilot Officer James Craig, and Aircraftman Second Class George Daniel Hempstead had survived the crash. Their bodies were found sitting beside their wrecked Defiant.
