Photos Martin B-26 Marauder

Hello,


Currently on ebay are two photos of Martin B-26 Marauder aircraft at:


https://www.ebay.com/itm/1943-WWII-U...4AAOSwz1dbgd5M


https://www.ebay.com/itm/1943-WWII-U...kAAOSwtHZbgdn2


The first photo has text on the rear indicating that the aircraft flew with the 19th Bomber Squadron.



Regards,


Clint

Clint. This is the 19BS emblem applied when camo removed; Lyndon Johnson (USN) won the Army Silver Star on her in June 1942.
White bars have recently been added to the insignia minus borders; there is a photo of her on "PacificWrecks" before the camouflage was stripped off.

Hi Nick,


Thanks for the photo and further info. Amazing when you look at subsequent presidents of the USA, how willing to put themseves personally on the line Johnson or Bush I were.


Regards,


Clint
