Memorial Picture "...ROBERTSON, James...James Robertson didn't cotton to life in a submarine. Too claustrophobic, he said. He joined the Navy and learned to fly instead. He trained in Pensacola and spent four years in the military during the Korean War. He was assigned to the VP-49 patrol squadron, stationed in NAS Bermuda. He patrolled the waters in search of enemy submarines. He got the "tough assignment," joked a son, James Douglas Robertson of Snellville. "He flew a big twin-engine seaplane." "The seaplanes would come back from maneuvers and we could see them landing from the house," said Irene Robertson, his wife of 55 years. "They would taxi around the base and, when they landed, the wives would go pick up their husbands." After the military, Mr. Robertson sought employment with a major airline. Pan Am and Eastern wouldn't give him a shot, but he found a job he wanted. In 1956, he joined Delta. After training in Atlanta, the pilot flew out of hubs in New Jersey and Miami before he returned to the city in 1961. In 1986, he retired after a 30-year career. "He just loved it because he felt he was closer to God up there with the remarkable sunsets and all the beauty he would see," his wife said. "He missed that when he retired." In October, James Frederick Robertson was diagnosed with liver cancer. He died March 8 from complications of the disease at Piedmont Mountainside Hospital in Jasper. He was 78. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday in the chapel of Roper Funeral Home in Jasper. Mr. Robertson was born in Orange, N.J., but grew up in the Jersey town of Westfield. He attended Brown University for three years, where he was in the Navy Reserves. He'd received notice that at some point he would have to join his squadron on a submarine in Japan. He elected to become a naval aviation cadet instead. Mr. Robertson never regretted not completing college. "He felt his education was with the military and Delta," his wife said. "He said that's what they gave him. He had never thought much about flying before the military. He was very satisfied with the time he spent in service." In 1986, Mr. Robertson retired to provide opportunity at Delta for his pilot son, James. In the 1980s, the company had a nepotism policy that prevented the hiring of the younger Robertson. "He was at the top of his career, in his mid-50s, but he sacrificially laid it all down and allowed me to be interviewed," said his son, who spent 22 years with Delta. "Fortunately, I was hired. I was thankful to him in that he was willing to sacrifice his last five years and everything else for me." The Robertsons lived in Sandy Spring for 35 years before they settled in Bent Tree, a retirement community in Jasper. Before his health prevented it, Mr. Robertson enjoyed golf. . He combined his love for reading and the stock market by reading investment materials. "The ticker tape was always on," his wife said. "He was content with that." Additional survivors include two daughters, Diane Robertson Little of Fairmount and Dawn Robertson Hartert of Marietta; another son, William Scott Robertson of Forest Park; a sister, Joyce Lowell of Albuquerque, N.M., and five grandchildren..."

My Division Chief was Charles Norman Warren. Ironically, our division was headed up by Mr. Warren, I believe he was a LT. He was one of the finest officers I ever met in the Navy, a graduate of the Naval Academy.

I served under two Squadron Captains: CDR Gage and CDR Walline. It was a happy day when CDR Walline became Commander of the squadron. I have many good memories from my 3 years in VP-34. I was not happy when President Truman extended my enlistment one year. I left the Navy on July 16, 1952 and moved to Washington, DC. I started work at Southern Railway Company in September and retired on August 31, 1987. In 1983 the company sent my office to Norfolk because Southern had merged with Norfolk & Western Railway. When my wife and I came to Norfolk to look for a house, it was my first time back since my discharge. Before we checked into our hotel, I detoured to Breezy Point so I could show my wife when I had been stationed. The Marine at the gate very graciously gave us a pass without having to go to the NOB gate. When we drove by the old hanger, the "Truculent Turtle" was missing.

On a dreary evening when we had just gone on duty, I was at the desk manning the phone. On Christmas Eve, I think. An unidentified caller asked about Willie Victor No.17---was the aircraft overdue? We had not yet received confirmation that 17 was down, so I passed the phone to Chief Blackington. The caller would not identify himself, and the Chief did not give him any information. Is information available on that aircraft and its crew? Anything concerning AirBarSRon-2 would be of great interest to me.

ROBERTSON, ATR1 Douglas G. dr_tug@dslextreme.com "...I joined the US Naval Air Reserve at NAS Minneapolis, Minnesota, taking the Navy enlistment oath on 27 December 1950 while still 17 during the Korean Conflict, as it was called then. I spent my 19th birthday while on two-week Winter cruise to NAS Oceana with VA-814. I served in VA-814 at NAS Minneapolis, Minnesota until transfer to NAS Glenview, Illinois VP-722 in September 1957 when I moved to Illinois to attend Grad School at Northwestern University. By then I had been advanced to ATR1. At NAS Minneapolis, Minnesota I graduated top of my class in AT basic electronics training for the AT3 rating under ATC Art Vikla and was asked to stay on as an Instructor. I instructed Basic Electronics for the AT rate the Summers of 1955, 1956 and 1957 at NAS Minneapolis, Minnesota while still attached to VA-814 TDY to the Reserve 85 day AT Basic Rate Training summer programs. I was aircrew in TBFs and SNBs getting flight pay at this time unitil VA-814 transitioned to the F-9F Panthers in about 1955-56. At NAS Glenview, Illinois I was aircrew in P2V-4s and P2V-5Fs. I had a two-week reserve cruise to AIRBETDIV NAF Santa Ana where I graduated top of class on APS-20 RADAR. I remember many day P2V aircrew training flights in the Chicago urban area and cross country 10-12 hours flights to NAF Litchfield Park, Arizona and return to NAS Glenview, Illinois non-stop in their P2V-5Fs. On a West Coast flight we had to make an emergency night landing at Salt Lake City airport when our P2V-5F voltage regulator went out and the battery acid boiled over, causing us to open the astro-hatch and go on portable oxygen bottles and masks. The SLC Tower was unfamilair with a Navy Neptune and asked whether we were larger than a DC-3, to which our aircraft Command Pilot replied "Give me your longest runway". We over-nighted there in a Quonset Hut and the squadron sent another P2V-5F for us to return to NAS Glenview, Illinois the next morning. I served in VP-722 until March 1959. Shortly afterward, VP-722 was called to active duty and sent to the Seattle are, then to the Aleutian Islands for 18 months.. I recall VP-722 winng the Conway Trophy for best Reserve VP Squadron two times, and believe that was instrumental in the squadron being called to active duty. In 1966 I took a civil service position at the Naval Missile Center, NAS Point Mugu, California and worked there 29 years, first in NMC to April 1975 where I was often TDY to WesPAC, then in PMTC until 1991 (in Flight Test Division from 1970 to 1983) and finally in NAWC Weapons Division NAS Point Mugu, California 1991 to January 1995 retirement. The last 12 years there I managed the HARM missile support program as HARM Acquisition Manager and HARM Technical Manager which entailed a lot of travel. I was awarded the Captain A. N. Perkins Award at NAWC Weapons Division in 1992 for Outstanding Performance in Acquisition Management of the HARM Missile Program. I retired as Physical scientist DP-3, Step 15.

I was an AM2 and a crew member on Easy Able 8, during the transition from PBM's to the P5M's. I was assigned to the crew of the first P5M, which had no radar installed, and so became one of the first AM's to be a PBM crewmember when we reverted to the old PBM 8-Boat while the radar was installed at the Martin plant in Baltimore. The metal shop was run by Chief "Shakey" Gimbert and "Red Eye" Morrison was transferred to VF-14 with me...I was in VP-49 during operation MAINBRACE in about 1952. We crossed the Atlantic in about ten days aboard the (AV-7) USS Currituck. I remember that there had been a mix-up about films and we ended up with only one, "The Thing" starring James Arness, which we watched every night in the hanger deck until everybody knew every word. The trip up the fijord to Trondhiem was spectacular with the vertical mountain walls about fifty feet away from each side of the ship. Squadron personnel bunked in a hole called "Hobby Lobby" deep into the bowels of the ship. It was right below the deck which the extra duty brigade chipped and repainted every night. Last winter I was in Florida and saw a picture of a seaplane tender of the (AV-7) USS Currituck Class hanging in a dive shop. It was to be sunk as an artificial reef. Was that the (AV-7) USS Currituck?..." [BIO Updated 26APR2001 | 25MAR2001]

During this time we were operating out of NAAS Ream Field, then moved NAAS Brown Field, home of the "Flying Pogo." We were operating with the JD's and P2V's. Also had the F7F's as chase planes for the F6F Drones. We received our first P2V for Johnsville, just prior to leaving NAAS Ream Field. We would still use Ream Field to launch our F6F Drones for Fleet gunnery practice. The JD's had the mounting brackets for the first KDA's, as well as our P2V's. In early 1957, one of our JD's accidently dropped a KDA in San Diego bay, on its way out for a drop. I flew in both the JD and P2V during my tour with the squadron. I was an Airman at the time. I was later sent to NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan, to VU-3, Det- B. All we had there was F6F Drones and F6F chase planes. We launched from an old airstrip, called Yonabru. We could look across Buckner Bay and see White Beach. We crashed many a Drone at this airstrip, returning back from fleet gunnery practice. I still have a bunch of 8mm movies of this along with a lot of black and white pictures. Around the first part of 1958 our detachment was taken over by VU-7, which was located at NAS Atsugi, Japan. We still had the same old aircraft, with the same old mission. You would not beleive my base salary was only $99.00 a month, with $50.00 flight pay a month. My first and last duty station was NAAS Ream Field, attached to HC-5, which was later redesignated to HSL-31. I did most all the LAMPS training for the Pacfic Fleet, working for COMCRUDESPAC, Aviation Section. I prepared the ship and its crew for ORI's and receiving of the LAMPS Helicopter.
