Hello - I'm researching 172 Squadron (and trying to locate ORB's from this period if anyone can help) and in particular an action which resulted in my father (Haydn Marshall) being wounded by a cannon shell and hospitalised in Malta sometime during this period. He was a navigator, but I have no idea with which crew.

The squadron was at Chivenor moving to Limavady in September of 1944. I've found references to a detachment to Luqa, Malta but the facts are very sketchy.

172 was Wellington XIV's at the time using Leigh Light and radar for ASW.

If anyone is interested I have a squadron photo of the whole of 172 at Chivenor, and a complete list of personnel.

It's a long shot, but if anyone can help I would be very grateful as I'm in the USA and I'm restricted to Internet research!
