Does anyone know whether the Supermarine Seafire was involved in the defense of Malta, such as convoy protection?  I would appreciate any information available.

This confirms it.

The Mk Vb was the first Spitfire to see extensive overseas service. On 7 March 1942, 15 Mk Vs carrying 90-gallon fuel tanks under their fuselages took off from HMS Eagle off the coast of Algeria on a 600-mile flight to Malta.[158]
