Aircraft history for serial number: 42-95799 (kindly provided by Paul Clouting).
Built at the Glenn L Martin factory at Baltimore, Maryland as a B-26B-45-MA. Accepted by the Army Air Force on 1/11/43. Next listed at Lynchburg Municipal Airport, Virginia (ATC) from 30/11/43. Then went to Godman Field, Fort Knox, Kentucky (from 1/12/43), and assigned to the 391st BG. Flown overseas to the UK via the Southern Ferry Route (Listed as Carribean Wing), departing the USA on 4/1/44. The aircraft record card then lists, SOXO A (Europe - 8th AF) on 4/1/44, and SOXO R (Europe - 8th AF) from 30/1/44. Original group aircraft flown over from the USA by Capt. Joe E. Earll Jnr. Entered service with the 391st BG / 572nd BS in February 1944. The aircraft record card also lists, GLUE 9AF CON ALS on 26/9/44, and, GLUE 9AF REPAIRED on 27/9/44. This indicates that the aircraft may have been damaged and force landed at an advanced landing strip, but this needs verification. Sustained severe battle damage on the 30/3/45 mission to Bad Oyenhausen, was declared Cat. E, and written off. Pilot 2nd Lt. Howard C Hesse. The final entry on the aircraft record card lists, SOXO CON SAL NBD on 2/4/45. We have a photo of this aircraft with nose art "Butch" and the last 4 digits of the serial visible "5799". May have also been named "Green Hornet".
