EAST ANGLIAN AIRBASES AND MUSEUMS

A 3-day tour covering Cambridge, Norwich and surrounding areas. I hope to give an insight into life on and off the bases that formed the “Fields of Little America”, which the US 8th Air force flew and fought from in World War 2. The Norfolk Records Office also holds a large collection of archives which is available for viewing by prior appointment.

As with all tours, visits/routes can be tailored to include desired locations.
