Warrant Officer II Donald Montgomery
April 3, 1943
415 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force
Service Number R/101199
Little‑Hampton Cemetery, Sussex, England. Age 20
Son of Mr. and Mrs. William Montgomery, Cultus Lake, B.C.

Born to a farming family living in Delta, British Columbia, Donald Montgomery received his education in Delta schools and was active in junior farming. He was a prominent member of the Delta Boys' and Girls' Potato Club and the Delta Grain Club, and won many agricultural prizes. On his eighteenth birthday, December 28, 1940, Donald enlisted in the R.C.A.F. and commenced training at Penhold, Alberta and later at 18 Elementary Flying Training School. On April 3, 1943, as a pilot with 415 Squadron, he flew a Hampden in an exercise with two Typhoon fighter‑bomber aircraft. While engaged in evasive action, the Hampden went out of control and into a spin at 2000 feet. Failing to recover, the aircraft crashed near Marsh Farm in Sussex, England. No one, of the four-man crew, survived.
