Description

Join us for this free mini workshop and discover the recently digitised archive of the Second Air Division of the United States Eight Army Air Force.

This is a unique collection of over 30,000 images of original photographs, letters, memoirs and other documents.

The new digital archive website tells the story of a vital part of Norfolk’s Second World War history, through the records of the courageous men and women of the Second Air Division.

During the War, East Anglia became home to tens of thousands of US service personnel, and the Eighth Air Force remains one of the largest air strike forces ever committed to battle.

The archive documents the wartime experiences of Second Air Division personnel and their relationships with British people in their 'home from home' in Norfolk and beyond during the War.
