Marchal foglights were attached to the grill by brackets. Most often the brackets were left on the grill (hence one way to detect an original grill) and holes were drilled for the Lucas lights in the grill molding panel below the grill. If your car still has the Marchal lights, then it is an early (pre-April 26th,1968) car that the owner did not take in for the recall. Eventually they all should have had Lucas lights.
