We had a full house at the museum on 3rd September for our open day. Lots of visitors, military vehicles, re-enactors and people sharing their memories of living in and around Thorpe Abbotts airfield.

Our event marked 40 years of our museum as well as 75 years since the USAAF arrived in East Anglia and significantly was held on the day on which in 1939 Britain announced it was at war with Germany.

A big thank you to everyone who attended and supported our cause. Crowds continually gathered round those telling stories of the 'Friendly Invasion'.

A massive thank you also goes out to all our volunteers who made the day possible and the local businesses and people who generously donated to the raffle.
