Nemecká mínolovka zakotvená v blízkosti obce Čunovo zostrelila 5. októbra 1944 britský bombardér Vickers Wellington B Mk.X (MF 458) zo 40. perute RAF s jeho päťčlennou posádkou - Arthur Leslie Mayers, Vallance McCall, Charles Herbert Gunby, Harry Walker Hesketh a Robert Cummin Ropson Johnson. Wellington mal za úlohu klásť míny do Dunaja. Podľa očitého svedka udalosti, bratislavského občana Vincenta Szelleho, lietadlo letelo chvíľku pozdĺž Dunaja a potom explodovalo. Jedno krídlo sa našlo na brehu rieky, zvyšok lietadla skončil v Dunaji. Celá posádka zahynula, našlo sa iba jedno telo, rádiotelegrafiu seržanta Gunbyho. Neskôr bol pochovaný na britskom vojenskom cintoríne v pražských Olšanoch.
