Wa'er/Defiance Mystery

I have come across an item in an on-this-day-in-history website which reads:

February 10 1943 Wa'er shot dead by Defiance

This piqued my curiousity and I have been trying to track down just who Wa'er was. I assumed it was connected with a WWII battle - Defiance being a ship perhaps, but the "shot dead by" indicates a more personal incident.

Is there any history buff out there that might know what this is all about?

Well, lezzles, nice to see you back, dear. <smile> I did some research myself and could only ascertain that wa'er was some sort of air craft.

My grandfather on my mother's side of the family, left not only his wife, but also his 7 children during the depression. HIS name was Waer. Perhaps somebody found him and shot HIM. Laughing

Babs--

I've got an ancestor who took off for the California Gold Rush with the wagon a mule in the middle of planting season.

He returned to his family four years later with malaria and without the wagon and the mule.

@lezzles,
Closest so far that I found to 1943 Defiance was Friday June 11, 1943 Defiance of Nazi's Decrease http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/82011057
