Hawker Typhoon Momentum air filter

Does anyone know the dates when the air filter was redesigned and when they were subsequently fitted ’in the field’? I remember a story told by my father who was an LAC in the RAF which referred to dust getting into Typhoon engines and he had to work an urgent 36 hr shift replacing engines / replacing air filters. Does anyone know where the Typhoons were based in Normandy at this time. I am researching my father’s RAF record and trying to fit the pieces together. Any information will be appreciated.
I think that he was with 3002E & 3043SE in the summer of 1944. What squadrons had Typhoons at this time
