Noted here as witnessing this event.
W/O A. S. Appleton went missing during an attack on a locomotive northwest of Munster on 18 December 1944, whilst flying Spitfire XIV, RM699. He was seen to bale out by Warrant Officer Viv Rossow (see Pilots R) after being hit by flak, and became a POW. Appleton's loss was considered a sad one by the Squadron as "it was agreed that he was an outstanding N.C.O. pilot". Eight locomotives were damaged and stopped by the Squadron around Munster that day. (Source: 41 Squadron ORB, PRO Air 27/426) (see RAAF records http://brew.clients.ch/PilotsA.htm

Q'LD. AIRMEN SMASH JETS
Queensland Spitfire pilots nave again been in the forefront of the battle against German jet planes over Europe.
Recently Warrant Officer V. J. Rossow, of Nanango, flying one of the latest five-blade propellor Spits., was on patrol when he saw a Messerschmitt 262 jet aircraft preparing to land.
"I closed in on him and gave him a long burst," said Rossow. "I noticed strikes around his wing and tail-plane, but he streaked away before I had time to get to another shot."
With Flying Officer E. Gray, of Toowoomba, Rossow then climbed to 6000ft. Gray noticed another jet aircraft 1000ft. below, and dived on it.
"I saw the flashes of my bullets hitting the cockpit of the jet," said Gray, "and saw the jet, apparently out of control, falling through cloud."
On the previous afternoon Gray sighted a Messerschmitt 110. Gray closed in and scored hits on the German plane, and before Gray could turn to attack again, one of his comrades finished off the Messerschmitt.

The Cootamundra District Coroner (Mr. H. Giles Shaw) on Monday held an inquiry into the cause of death of a young lad, Edward Walter Harold Ingold, who was drowned In a dam at Mr. Bassingthwaighte's farm at Cullinga. Corroborative evidence was given by three young lads who went with the deceased lad bathing. Their story was: They all went to this dam to bathe on Sunday afternoon, and deceased, who could not swim, got beyond his depth; he went under, and his mates thought he was only playing; he came up the second time, only his head showing above the water; each boy made attempts to rescue the lad, but only one ot the number was able to swim a little; they could not find the body, and went for assistance; the body was in the water for about three-quarters of an hour before its recovery; the water was very cold at the time. The coroner's finding was that deceased had been accidentally drowned whilst bathing. The deceased lad was a son of Mr. Jasper Ingold, the respected Cullinga farmer, and was only 16 years of age. The lad had been a cripple, suffering from curvature of the spine.
