The B26.com website index, by John O. Moench

The Martin B-26 Marauder
This index includes those who touched or were touched by the B26 Marauder and through postings now appear in the B26.COM guestbook.

Created in 1998 by Mike Smith in honor of his uncle, Bob Brockett, the b26.com website became a central meeting ground for the U.S. and international B26 Marauder community. Trevor Allen, renowned Martin B-26 Historian, is the historian on the site. Together Allen and Smith run the b26 site. Eventually, the scope of b26.com advanced to the point that this “finding” index became necessary. What is an “index” – it is a doorway to historical knowledge. What purposes have been served by b26.com – why has it more than other websites attracted an extensive number of users and viewers -- now numbering in the millions? A basic answer is that, unlike too many websites, b26.com is a friendly, uncomplicated environment – no music, whistles and nonsense. Thanks to Mike Smith, he runs a good ship, and as a “better mousetrap,” many do come.

As illustrated by the more than a decade of use of b26.com, this website has fulfilled many needs:

A means to remember and memorialize Marauder Men and Women.
A means to communicate with the B26 Marauder associated community.
A means to find persons.
A means to seek historical information.
A means to provide select historical information to others.
A means for Marauder Men and Women to leave their mark in history.
A means to assemble and clarify B26 Marauder history.
A data and assistance source for researchers and authors.

The preparation of this index necessitated a degree of translation of the postings included in b26.com. This included correction of posting errors, the combining of separate entries into a single listing (often made difficult by spelling errors and name shortenings), and the prioritizing of data for inclusion in the index – something that could not follow a standard format. The index began with a guideline to limit each entry to a single line, but, in some cases, it became necessary to extend the entry to two and, at times, three or more lines.

In selecting the data to be included in each entry, no unique guideline, priority or favoritism was employed. Should a reader find an error in an entry or wish to add detail or clarification to an entry, comment should be directed to b26.com.
To the maximum extent possible, the following index entries adhere to the data contained in the original postings. This means that an error in a posting may result in an error in the associated index entry. That there are errors in the original postings is to be accepted in that military particulars are not necessarily known by those making the posting, and the memory of the distant past can be faulted.

For reader assistance, the more or less standard crew and other positions relating to the B26 were: pilot; co-pilot (normally filled by a rated pilot, but early in WW II some non-rated enlisted men flew as copilot); bombardier (may be termed a togglier – meaning that the bomb drop was “toggled” off the drop of the lead bombardier rather than by use of a Norden or D-8 bombsight); engineer (who may be termed a flight engineer and who would fill a turret or other gun position, i.e. as engineer-gunner); navigator (who would fill a turret or other gun position); the bombardier-navigator filling both positions; GEE navigator or operator using the cited equipment; armorer (relating to a non-flying or flying persons dealing with armaments: bombs & guns); radio operator or radioman (who would fill a gun position, i.e. radio-gunner); waist gunner (a right and left position in the B26), tail gunner, crew chief (a ground person); photographer-gunner, and mechanic.

For identity, where known the names and serial numbers of B26s, the mission count of the person, and personal factors such as killed, KIA, MIA and POW is cited.

In that military grades are transient, they are usually omitted in the index entry.

The relationship of a submitting persons to that of the primary persons is depicted when known; for submitting persons having no relationship to the primary person, the term advocate may be used.

First name only Guest Book entries normally are not indexed; when indexed they may be under the designation of NLN (no last name).

Due to the volume, all but unusual compliments about or contributory data of b26.com, Mike Smith, Trevor Allen, other historians & responders are not individually referenced.

In most cases, the author of supplemental data is shown in brackets at the close of an index entry.

The coverage of the index is but a small fraction of that which constitutes “The Marauder Community.”

The interest in historical “happenings” tends to rise and fall in cycles with the more dominant attention focused at the following 50 and 100 year points. Circumstances surrounding a “happening” are, in the more immediate timeframe, viewed mostly as current day news rather than as historical events. Typically, those directly involved in a historical “happening” set aside the event and proceed on to the next stage of life. But, as years go by, the typical participant in the historical “happening” increasingly begins to reflect on that event. Concurrently, as age begins to take its toll, those who participated in the historical “happening” are driven to establish a record of what took place, while those of a younger age begin to “want to know” what took place in the past. Eventually, the participants in the historical “happening” wither and pass on – often leaving an inadequate or distorted record of what took place. As George Santayana wrote, the reading of recorded history would be great if only it were true.

In World War II a very significant historical “happening” was the introduction of the B-26 Marauder, a product of the Martin Company of Baltimore, Maryland. The general opinion of this aircraft was that it would not succeed – later that it was not supposed to succeed.

In war, one fights with the weapons one has. The result was that, while there was hesitation, the B-26 was thrown into the battle, first in U.S. coastal defense activity and then from bases in Australia and Alaska – with notable participation in The Battle of Midway. Following, the B-26 would be employed in the North Africa/Mediterranean environment with progressive movement north – with the major elements employed in the Ninth Air Force operating out of England and then France and Germany. Before the war ended, the B-26 would serve in RAF, SAAF and FFAF units – with, in Australia, RAAF personnel filling in to replace lost USAF personnel.

While the performance of the B-26 Marauder turned out to be outstanding, it was the dedication, initiative and positive participation of tens of thousands of men and women, beginning from the factory floor, through training, and then through combat, that took this often demeaned and discredited aircraft over and beyond the wall of criticism and objection that had been erected – mostly by the uninformed and prejudiced. In the words of William B. Harwood as contained in Raise Heaven and Earth, The History of Martin Marietta’s People and Their Pioneering Achievements, the performance of this aircraft and those surrounding it formed “the stuff of legends.”

The B-26 Marauder story, however, did not take major form until those with pen in hand placed it on paper and undertook to correct the embedded falsehoods of the past. As this took place so did the growth of pride in being associated with the B-26 Marauder take place and the term “Marauder Men” would become a recognized mark of distinction.

In the immediate and following World War II timeframe, there were only a handful of attempts to place the B-26 Marauder story in print – most notable was the early printing of a short history of the 22nd Bombardment Group and then Flak Bait by Devon Francis. Finally, as the years advanced, others took on the task of writing and publishing the unit and more personal histories of the Marauder community.

In coming years, with the growth of Internet, this new means of publishing and “reaching out” began to take hold -- and both individuals and associations undertook the development of “websites.” Due to lack of fundamental understanding, planning and performance, most of these website undertakings turned out to be minimum performers. In contrast, at the high end of performance was the website b26.com established by Mike Smith in May 1998 – 43 years following the end of World War II and at the approach of the 50-year point of the history of that “happening.”

Mike Smith was not a World War II “Marauder Man” – by definition, he was “second generation.” Mike’s motivation was simply to pay tribute to his “Marauder Man” uncle Bob Brockett and his crew. Soon, however, his focus enlarged to encompass the entire B-26 Marauder and associated community and a depth of Marauder history. Mike was neither a “historian” or an “academic” – he was simply a committed person dedicated to do a job. In the next ten years, as measured by use and service rendered, the work of Mike Smith would surpass that of all others to include some that spent tens of thousands of dollars in an attempt to develop a worthy and, theoretically, a “professionally managed” B-26 Marauder website. As to b26.com and in the words of Mike Smith:

B26.com provided online community, research, documents and data that enable people to build a deep and lasting understanding of historical events surrounding those who served in the Martin B-26 Marauder. The veterans and their descendants, historians, academia and the general public want an easily accessible, historical correct representation of those who served to be open an available to the general public.

In the decade since Mike Smith opened b26.com, truly a friendly, easy-to-use website devoid of any need for “membership,” complex “log in” requirements, access “codes” or “passwords” and other identification to include “bells, music and whistles,” its monthly visitor totals have reached beyond 50,000 (with to date visitor “hits” at the level of 4.5 million), while some of the well-financed websites gather virtually no use at all.

In special support of b26.com has been Trevor Allen of England – the world’s most outstanding B-26 Marauder historian and one “who has the answers.” In addition, others of the World War II timeframe and their descendents have joined to make b26.com “the best of the best.”

As the scope of b26.com grew, so did its “Guest Book.” And now, to facilitate search of this expanding “Guest Book,” this index has been prepared.

B26.com was established to serve not just the Marauder and associated community but also the general public and to advance the assembly of correct historical knowledge. There is a demand not just for information but for correct information. Information, however, is never complete, and it is through the sharing of information that a full and correct history can be developed. Unfortunately, over the years much of the historical record has disappeared. Thus, when a family member or historian seeks data, the service of b26.com is there. Do help in adding to the scope of this web site, and feel free to employ it – above all, search this index for those you can assist and who can assist you.

Format & Clarification Notes

Following the close of WW II, the Martin B-26 Marauder was not retained in inventory. The a redesignation of “A” or “attack” aircraft led to the Douglas A-26 Invader being redesignated as “B-26.” In turn, the use of B-26 became “muddied” in history. The largest confusion took place in the Korean Conflict where the cited “B-26” is actually the redesignated “A-26.” To clarify the accounts set forth in this text, wherein the cited “B-26_is actually the redesignated “A-26,” the term “B-26/A-26” may be used.

A minimum description of cited persons is provided. The term “advocate” is applied to those persons having a supporting interest in the B-26 and/or its operation, personnel, and history.

To assist in ready identification of aircraft names and assigned numbers, such items are italicized.

French B-26 Marauder units are “named,” e.g. Bretange.

Military airfields are designated by alpha/number, e.g. K-9 is Pusan, Korea, A-20 is Lessay, France.

The date sequence used to identify items in the b26.com Guestbook are month/day/year. Classes, such a pilot training, are identified by year and alpha sequence in the year, e.g. 44H.
