2/Lt. J. P. VERSTER, DOD: 01 JULY 1951

2/Lt. Verster was reported overdue after a ferry flight.
The following day 2 squadron was advised that the wreckage of his aircraft had been found NE of Sosan. A Korean eyewitness said he had seen the aircraft pouring black smoke come to within 100ft of the ground when it suddenly nose-dived, and hit the ground. According to eyewitnesses Verster attempted to jump, but was too late. The Koreans made a coffin and buried the body. After a service they placed a cross and two wreaths on the grave.
Verster’s body was later recovered and buried in the UN Cemetery at Busan.
