    Hi Henk

    CWGC has him as J N Wallworth not Wandsworth.

    The Malta Family History site (http://website.lineone.net/~remosliema/rafw.htm) doesn't have him listed under either name.
    Interests include Spitfires in Malta 1942 and 460 Sqdn 1943-44 (including Black Thursday)

    J N Wallworth is KOAS in Flight Magazine dated oct 22nd 1942.

    There are Maltese Civilian Casualties this day:

    Mary and Carmela Calleja, St. JOhns Street
    Anthony and Carmelo Debono, St. Johns Street
    Alfred Fenech, St. Cajetan Street
    Fredu Muscat, St. Cajetan Stree
    Jennie Scerri, New Street
    Joan C, William H & Fillipa Whiddatt, St. Cajetan Street.

    A bombing casualty maybe.
