MEMORIALS & MORE
During World War Two over 100 Aerodromes or Airfields were constructed in East Anglia. Most have been returned to agriculture, the occasional runway still exists and a precious few are still used by Flying Clubs and a handful are still either in use with the Royal Air Force, United States Air Force or the British Army.
Most Airfields have a memorial of some description and some of these are pictured here. The memorials do not usually bear any names of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Many small villages however have small memorials to airmen who died when their aeroplane crashed, these too are listed here at their station rather than where they crashed and most of those do bear the names of the dead.
