Flight Sergeant Norman Carn, UK, flew Tempests with 274 Squadron. On 28 August 1944 Carn shot down a V-1, reporting:

“I was vectored at 1400 on a Diver coming in over Folkestone at 2,000 feet.  With a Meteor and two Tempests I chased it and attacked from 200 yards astern, closing in to 50 yards for my second burst.  The Diver went in and exploded in a field near Maidstone”.

Later Carn was killed in action when brought down by flak over Arnhem on 30 September 1944 in JJ-O(EJ629).
