|Pilot 1st Lt. R. S. Marsh (rescued)
Ditched January 23, 1944 at 0930
The formation rendezvoused with SBD Dauntless over Taiof Island at 0805 at 6,000' then climbed to 12,000' passing over New Ireland. This Corsair experienced mechanical trouble and was forced to abort the mission and turned back towards base before the engine began to sputter forcing Marsh to ditch into the sea at 72° roughly 20-30 miles off the tip of Cape St. George.
