OS 49 05-05-1943 Hr.Ms. Jacob van Heemskerck. Aan boord van de luchtverdedigingskruiser Hr.Ms. Jacob van Heemskerck, die op weg was van Melbourne naar de Exmouth Golf, West-Australië, bleek de matroos T. de Jong overboord te zijn geraakt. Hoewel meteen op tegenkoers werd gegaan, werd niets meer van De Jong vernomen en moest worden aangenomen dat hij was verdronken.
