WW2 saw thousands of American servicemen arrive in East Anglia, using the region as a base for their sorties across the continent.
There are several places across Norfolk and Suffolk where you can find tributes to these brave men, such as the 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum, in Thorpe Abbots near Norwich. The museum is a moving testament to the Americans who were stationed in Thorpe Abbot during the war. It consists of the control tower, the engine shed and several other original buildings, plus thousands of exhibits.
