Remembering the Past at 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum
The museum has been keeping the memories of the 100th Bomb Group alive for 40 years so on this special occasion they’re offering visitors the chance to hear from people who remember living through this momentous period of history.
On 3rd September bring the family and check out our re-enactors, military vehicles and enjoy some refreshments.
Remembering the Past offers visitors the chance to talk to members of the community who were children during the war and remember the ‘Friendly Invasion’ of the American servicemen who were stationed at Thorpe Abbotts. We’ll have re-enacters, vintage military vehicles as well as an assortment of food and drink and merchandise for sale. The event marks both the 75th Anniversary of US General Ira C. Eaker arriving in the UK to take command of the US Army Air Force as well as 40 years of our museum. The event is markedly to be held as well on the day which Britain and France entered the war in 1939.
Housed in the original airfield control tower and other atmospheric buildings 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum is a moving testament to the Americans who came to Thorpe Abbotts in Norfolk to fight alongside the allies during World War Two.
