The following is taken from TASMANIANS AT WAR IN THE AIR 1939-1945 with the kind permission of Brian Winspear    

Donald Jennings was born in 1918, joined up in 1940 and trained as a pilot in Australia and Canada and then went to a Wellington Squadron in England .  After being injured in a crash, he was transferred to Coastal Command flying Sunderlands.  

In October 1944 his aircraft was reported missing off the coast of Norway. The speculation at the time was that a submarine under attack had shot it down.  No bodies were ever recovered.
