An office type, I served with the squadron as education yeoman, and flew as observer/nosegunner in the gunless front nose seat every chance I could get; generally with Lt(j.g.)

I served with VP-8 until it relocated to NAS Norfolk, Virginia in late 1958 -- shortly thereafter, promoted to JO3 and transferred to USS Greenwich Bay (AVP-41). Still have many memories of the squadron and its people (including some home 8mm movies taken at NAS Chinco), standing frigid ramp watches trying to stay out of the snow and wind in the nosewheel wells, those horrible "box lunches" packed aboard for 8-hour patrol flights and all the rest of that fun stuff..."

Toward the end of my tour, I volunteered to be part of a three-man task force to monitor an improvised the rocket range for incoming fleet fighter aircraft. A hastily-constructed "target" of white coral was set-up on a plateau-like outcropping off the southern tip of the island in Magicienne Bay. After each run by the aircraft, my job was to descend from my position in a "Harp Shack", on the edge of the cliff, that was 100 yards distant from the target, and then climb to the top of the plateau, rearrange the destroyed coral and then back to my original position, etc. Apparently, because of the constant immersion in the surf and then continually working with coral rock, I developed severe jungle rot of hands and feet. Was air-evaced to Guam, then to Aiea Heights Naval Hospital, Hawaii and finally to Oak Knoll NH, California, for the next six smonths before discharge.

Being an AME, there wasn't much difference in the aircraft systems, but I both enjoyed working and cussing the P2, because of what I considered the tight work space. I went on to work on A4's F4'2, F8's, and F14's, but always considered the propeller driven aircraft to be "real" airplanes, versus "vaccuum cleaners" I only got to ride in the P2 once, because I wasn't designated aircrew, but it was a good flight, from NAS Memphis, Tennessee to St. Louis to pick up some reserve aircrew, for their 2 weeks active duty.

I was an ET2 stationed at Ground Electronics from December 1977-April of 1980. I left for another tour at sea aboard USS Barnstable County (LST-1197). Before my tour there was complete I got a Humanitarin transfer back to NAS Brunswick, Maine for the summer of 1983. My Dad had a stroke then a heart attack and my Mother had back surgery all within 3 months. It was a long summer. Leaving NAS Brunswick, Maine once more I reported to the USS Aylwin (FF-1081) to finish my interupted sea tour. While there I was promoted to CPO. Following my short tour there I was once again assigned to NAS Brunswick, Maine. This time I was the Maintenance Chief of the Ground electronics GEMD division. I served this tour from June of 1985 through December of 1988. Leaving NAS Brunswick, Maine for the third time I spent three years assigned to NAS Sigonella, Sicily. My duties ther included Physical Security Officer and Assistant CMS Custodian. I had planned on retiring following my tour there, but several surgeries put that on hold. My last surgery was at Naval Hospital Bethesda, MD. While waiting for my medical board I persuaded them to reassign me to NAS Brunswick, Maine. My medical hold lasted two years and two months. I finally retired on 30 April 1994 with 22 years of service. At my retirement ceremony the Base XO said, I'm a little jealous of a BLACK SHOE having 4 tours at NAS Brunswick, Maine."

We lost a few planes that could not take off before a typhoon hit us off the coast of Okinawa, but fortunately all our crews made it safely to nearby ships. We did lose one plane after the war. They were on a sight-seeing trip over Japan and hit a mountain. In addition to the crew, an admiral and a captain were on board. The plane was not found for over two years.

He did two tours in the SP with VPB-137 (second tour the CO was Porter). My dad's name is Robert Markham. In Aug 43 he co-piloted for Fred MacFarland (Big Mac). Mac had come from the Aleutians and had some combat flying experience. At this time they were in VPB-142. In Sep or Oct 43 they transfered to VPB-137, went to Walace Island and then Funifuti Island in the Ellice Island group. In dec 43 they moved to Tarowa in the Gilberts about one week after it was taken by the ground troups. They were relieved by VPB-142 in Jan 44, returning to Alameda in Feb 44. After leave, the squadron reformed (VPB-137) and trained in the San Waken Valley in CA. Good friends were Schaffer, Carlson, and Berkowitz. They were stationed near Patterson CA and Berkowitz married Sue Patterson while there. Aug 44 VPB-137 left the US to the Philippines. They went to the Admiralty Islands flying sub patrols around Manus Island around Nov 44, Moriti Island Dec 44 and then Tacloman on Leyte Gulf. My father and Berkowitz were the first two Navy officers into Clark Field. Here, Berkowitz drew a pencil sketch of my father, Robert Markham. We still enjoy this drawing. From Clark Field they flew patrols over the China coast and Formosa. Here he bombed an alcohol factory on formosa and flew cover for the USS Bullhead as she picked up a downed piolet. The Bullhead never returned according to my father. On a search I recently did, the Bullhead is listed as going down on Aug 6, 45 in the west end of Lombok Strait. VPB-137 returned to the states in July 45. I would be interested in learning more about VPB-137 and would like to hear from anyone who knows more about what I described above..."

Coming back from Munich the whole crew, except three of us, were trashed from too much partying. As a result the Navigator flew as pilot. I Flew as copilot and the Plane Captain acted as Naviator. Consequently were got lost over Holland on our return trip. The rest of the crew remained sick till our return to NAS Keflavik, Iceland. I have lots of stories, names and photos of P2Vs over the Alps returning from Munich and in NAS Keflavik, Iceland. In our last months in NAS Keflavik, Iceland our barrack (designed to hold approx 300 Non Comm) had a rotating complent of 50 t0 100 live-in Icelandic girls most very lovely college students who found the free cigarettes, booze and food in the barracks a great attraction. Lot of free love prevailed. Most every room had three sailors and an Icelandic ROOMATE. The wind and was terrible for flying. Icelanders could roam on base which caused big problems with raids from the Icelanic police making the rounds of the barracks rounding up girls. Iceland men would sneak into P2Vs and steal any thing they could carry off since no fences. Wild times for a young AT2. Regards..." [26JUN2000]

In P2's, I was in the Avionics Shop and on Relief Crew as a Radio Operator and in P-3's I was in Crew 5 also as Radio Operator (ATN2 & AW2). After a slight break I affiliated with VP-91 as a Plank Owner at commissioning in October 1970 ( NAS Moffett Field, California). I have CAPT Bobbie Farrar to thank for this as he convinced me that I should over look my bad attitude toward the Navy as they were a good outfit. He was indeed right. I then became a JEZ Operator and eventually SS1/SS2 and NATOPS Evaluator for that seat position. I left VP-91 in May 1976. I still keep up with a lot of Shipmates from both squadrons.

MARTINEZ, PH1 Roland Nino Retired martooony@aol.com "...I reported to VP-46 right out of NAS North Island, San Diego, California boot camp on 1 November 1956. Within three months the squadron was in NS Sangley Point, Philippines for a six month deployment. Although not sent to PH school, I was in the Education department until I passed the PH3 exam and then began flying in the South China Sea area doing what the Ordnanceman would usually do and that is to "rig ships and photograph the reefs". Greatest duty flying into Hong Kong Harbor in a PBoat; having a crew take the aircraft back to NS Sangley Point, Philippines and vacation for a week. Was on leave when 6Boat (SEE: In Memorial for lost friends December 9th, 1957) went down in NAS Corpus Christi, Texas around Christmas time 1957. I named my first son after Paul Faircloth, an AL2 from Florida, who was on board the aircraft. I made a second deployment where I met my wife-now of almost 50 years - in 1958. I departed VP-46 in March 1959 for Washington, DC. I did return to NS Sangley Point, Philippines, one more time and attached to Commander, Naval Forces, Philippines (COMNAVPHIL) from 1962 to 1965. Two sons Paul and Mark were born at the Navy Hospital NS Sangley Point, Philippines. Currently live in Chula Vista, Ca. I have many photos and negatives from the squadron days as well as some fine art done by our Vietnam artist and Historian here at our Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 472, Old Navy Chapel offices, below the old Navy Hospital in Balboa Park. The art is great and the artist is Richard Derosset, a fellow vet and member. I would like very much to put some of his PBoat work up on the site, one view with 6Boat being pulled from the water by a tractor, right about sunset. I also have and just purchased a commission of 12 PBoats, floating, flying, one being lifted aboard Salisbury Sound AV6 at an advanced base, probably near Taiwan somewhere, cannot recall. The scene is frpm a photo taken in April 1957, before the Sally went back to the States. I actually had a direct hand in producing two cruise books of VP46 with PH's Meadows, Waymire, Finney,and Goodwin. The PHs in the 58 cruise book were: Meadows and Goodwin. The two great officers John Wade and Ronald Oelhbeck were the producers of the book. I have two of them. Also have a lot of color slides of views around the PI, when we landed near Cebu and other places. Finally, I have one of the original concept drawings of the trident and mailed hand, designed by LT McLeod, I believe. I would ultimately like to donate it to your archive with the prints and negatives that I have of the old Martin Mariners. It was a great time and place for a nineteen year old to get his Navy career started that lasted another 18 years. Although the Navy PBoats are gone, it will always be a lasting and unique memory of another time where many photo imagescaptured this era, and sailor's lives some 54 years ago..."

NADU had a large variety of aircraft and I was fortunate enough to fly on all of them except the single seat fighters. I was part of the crew on the Super Constellation "Big Dipper" When she crashed in Johnsville, PA and was very fortunate to have been chosen to fly 2nd radio on our ZPG-2N Airship "Snowbird" when she broke the Graf Zeppelin's unrefueled distance and time aloft records.

I was stationed at NAS Moffett Field, California in Sunnyvale, California, first with VP-19 then transferred to VP-31 then back to VP-47. I left the service in 1974 as an AW-1. I served as a crewman on various flight crews and with VP-31 was also an Instructor training flight crews. I helped train the Australian Air Force when they purchased P-3's and saw when they lost one of their aircraft on landing at Moffett Field when one of the main landing gear broke off. It was determined later using metallurgical tests that the metal used to make that landing strut had crystallized and was defective. I was also in the VP-19 when they lost an airplane on an evening sub exercise south of Catalina Island. I was to take the place of one of the crewman who died in the crash however he showed up for his flight and went instead. I was also in the squadron when one of the flight crews was doing touch and go's and an Ames Research 707 was directed to land on the same runway and the 707 crashed into the underside of the P-3. The only survivor of that crash was a friend of mine named Bruce Malibert. He wasn't supposed to live. He sure fooled the doctors. Not only did he live, he came out of his coma and learned to talk again. He remained a paraplegic though. He was from San Bernardino, California. The last I heard is that he got married..."
