From the National Archives AIR/27/987 145 Squadron ORB

16th Apr 1945 - Injured

Leader strafed twice and on second run was hit by S.A.F. causing glycol leak. Pilot baled out at M.0835. Pilot suffered compound fracture of left leg. (MT569)

LT. J.M.G. ANDERSON (SA.328527) while on ROVER DAVID was hit by S.A.F. in the radiator. After just reaching our lines he was forced to bale out. Some difficulty in leaving the aircraft resulted in his left leg hitting the tail plane causing a fracture below the knee. On reaching the ground he was unable to help landing on his injured leg and unfortunately broke it again above the knee. He was taken to hospital and owing to the compound nature of his fractures he will probably return to the Union of S.Africa.
