JG26 was officially called Jagdgeschwader Schlageter, named after German pilot Albert Leo Schlageter who in 1923 attacked a train leaving Germany for France with coal the Germans couldn't have because of the Versailles Treaty. Allied flyers referred to JG26 as The Abbeville Kids or The Abbeville Boys since they were stationed at Abbeville from December 1940 until February 1941. In August 1940 Major Adolf Galland was given command of JG26 and by the end of 1940 Galland's Bf-109E wore 58 victory markings and a total of 104 by war's end.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
