From the National Archives AIR/27/1818 ORB
Two of our pilots flew off into the blue today and never returned. A section of four aircraft was scheduled to bomb a gun position west of IMOLA, but the leader failed to get off due to mechanical difficulty. A second aircraft piloted by Flying Officer, S.A. Marshall, (CAN.J.28750), had radio trouble and returned to base leaving F/L Jimmy Waslyk (CAN.J.20636), and F/O Raymond Edge (CAN.J.26144), to complete the mission. These pilots were never heard of again.
