I thought it might be of interest to others to see some of the memorials that are erected in the East Anglian countryside in England to honour the men of the USAAF Bomb Groups.

The first is the memorial to the 388th Bomb Group.

Your right, of course, they look quite similar on these small thumbnails.

That's an impressive memorial, funnily enough I was talking about Ridgewell the other day, I would like to get down to that neck of the woods next year and have a good look round.

Do you guys want to see more of these ?

 

it would be my pleasure to share more pics of these as i live mostly within an hour and a halfs drive of nearly all the 8th stations in East Anglia.

 

My father and late mother are /were founding members of FOTE "Friends of the 8th" and also my father is now UK Director of Operations for the USA based 8th Air Force Historical Society UK.

Yes I would like to see more. Our grandfathers and fathers trained at many different locations in the states and sadly there is very little here to remind us of where they trained and what they did and where they served.
