Wreckage of an Avro Anson aircraft (possibily no. NJ141) of No. 73 Squadron RAAF floating in the water 20 nautical miles east of Jervis Bay. The aircraft continued to float until sunk by naval gunfire. It had made a forced landing due to engine failure. The crew, who were not injured, were picked up by a naval escort and taken to Sydney. A message from the pilot received by other patrol aircraft of the squadron via lamp through the naval escort was `Tell my wife not to keep dinner. I'm going to Sydney with the Navy'.
